This 1990 book includes her words, as well as being the first collection of some of her favorite Christmas paintings.
The "Christmas longing" she refers to is that nostalgia she recognizes and remembers from childhood.
For those who are lonely during this season, she suggests that there's simply no reason to stay outside in the lonely wind, stubbornly waiting for someone else to "make our Christmas special"---WE need to reach out and take the initiative.
This is a fine addition to the list of non-fiction books for Christians about Christmas.
