Our joyful family members together quickly increase the decibels at Christmas. Add in wrapping paper swirling around, happy "Thank-You's" tumbling out, and sounds of new toys in use, and anyone might run for cover!

One year, my young son began to seem a little overwhelmed by all the celebrating.

His grandma noticed, and gently led him off to the side with his new toy. There they found some peace.

With all the crazy on Earth, we crave relief away from stress, sickness, death, loss, conflict, just far from all the noise. We hope to find it in some escape...but we come up empty.
