Christmas EVE

It's Christmas Eve...
The lights are all lit,
Christmas carols can be heard in the background.
I wish I could invite all of you to my home tonight,
sit around the Family table....
and personally wish you all a Blessed Christmas.
Many of you have become like family to me.
My wish is that you may all enjoy a blessed time
with your family and friends.
Continue to share love with all those you meet.

The table is set...
Just like the rest of you,
we've completed most of our responsibilities,
the list is finished for now...
and now we just want to sit down
to relax and celebrate with each other.

Even the youngest has a name tag!

Tonight we will light the 4th Candle.

LOVE

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Today I am thanking God for his Love.
It's boundless, limitless, and unchangeable.
His supply is inexhaustible.
It also includes not only the lovely,
but the unlovely.

My prayer for this Christmas is that the reality of Christmas
can make me bigger....my mind more open to possibilities,
my heart more creative,
my dreams more compelling,
my energies devoted more to others and less to self.

Let Christmas also make me smaller, too.... more humble,
more mindful of who I am and who God is.
Let the Christmas light a fire of love in me,
with passion and compassion...for those close to me,
and for a world in need.

May you all experience God's LOVE this Christmas Season.

  9. It seems the secret of a fulfilling life is...what you said. Our moments of deepest joy come when we are investing our life into another. Whether to help, or simply enjoy companionship.
