Maybe letter writing is not just an Advent tradition, but also a forgotten blessing. To send notes of thanks and appreciation for the good that people do in the world, that is indeed a blessing. I confess that it is easier to send a quick email, but there is something extra special about taking the time to write. If God could and does bend low to be with us, I can share thanks and blessings with others.
—Larry J. Peacock, The Living Nativity: Preparing for Christmas with Saint Francis (Upper Room Books, 2018)
