Merry Christmas! This is a time of the year that we should feel the blessings that surround us. Every day, our world is filled with wonderful things that money cannot buy.
Christmas time brings a mandate to be merry. It is a reminder to millions that on this day, Jesus was born to give divine light to all. There are blessings in the fellowship of the season. It occurs even between complete strangers, who embrace in honor of seasonal tradition.
Might we try to practice unconditional love all year round? Let’s never lose sight of why we are all here on this place called Earth. Our individual paths must cross to create roads of survival. There is no isolation in success. No matter where or who you are, the rules of humanity will reflect in your personal Shangri-La. As is customary during this time of year, we should always strive to disallow negative emotions that derail our mission to express love.
Feeling free in the moment, and hopeful for the next day, delivers an abundance of delight. Life is good. We have been given this day, these moments in the holiday season, while others have passed on. What will you do with this time and space? Are you sincerely hoping for the best for all people? If so, you give the best to yourself.
Enjoy the moments that can’t be bought, and relish the treasures God has given. Your internal light will shine even brighter as Kwanzaa turns us toward the red, black and green. Find peace in your heart of forgiveness, and greet the holidays with a smile.
