Are You at Peace?

For the first time, I have a child old enough to understand what is going on at Christmas time.  The last three years, he was just too young to really put all the pieces together, but this year he has been full of questions and excitement, much to my delight.  We have discussed all of the different parties we’ll attend, gifts we need to buy and cookies to bake.  We have marked the advent calendar for important dates and the…
