The frost looked like snow this morning, which is usually as close as we get to the real stuff.
I love this time of year. I enjoy the gorgeous weather, yes, but that’s only a small part of it. We’ll hopefully have nice for months now.
I love the holidays. I like to think that the goodwill shared during the holiday season makes a dent in the hate and counters commercialism.
From All Saints, All Souls, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Bodhi to Christmas and New Year’s with many Saints’ Feast Days in between…
Happy Holidays. Happy Holy Days to All.
For me, it is Christmastime. Even more specifically, Advent has begun. The Church’s prayers, the reminders to be still amidst everything, and the hopes in our hearts are consistent, persistent, and beautiful.
Can a little goodwill and quiet time really make a difference in this world? The answer is YES. ABSOLUTELY. If you experience a lifting of your spirits or a sense of peace, that’s already a difference in the world because you are in the world. If you share that joy with those around you and their spirits are lifted, it becomes an even bigger difference. And if, when they leave you, they share that joy with a word of kindness, a prayer, a smile, well, you can see how it goes.
Politics – what a blight on creation. Most of us cannot do much about situations happening across the world. We can speak out. We can donate. We can pray.
Do not dismiss prayer. It is a positive action. They add up.
As for me, as I wait in prayer to celebrate the birth of Christ, I am glad to be reminded of peace, hope, and love.
I wish them all to you and yours.
A Little of This, a Little of That
Keep me away from the wisdom that does not cry, the philosophy that does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. – Gibran Khalil Gibran
From me to you with a smile.
