I simply do not know. Christians CelebraTE the Advent of redemption.
Other faiths celebrate the glimmer of re-dedication
while most of the western world embraces the folklore
and fun of the season.
But there remain however, many unknowns. And while most everyone has traditions for home
and feasts of wonder
with colors that enchant
tastes that delight
with the perfume of childhood memories
I JUST do not know when He actually arrived.
But what I do know is this:
Love One Another.
It was His opening scene
and His final act.
And as I was enjoying a holiday wreath in my home, I was stunned by a moment of reflection.
Have you ever noticed how much this symbol of the warmth and welcome of Christmas
resembles a LIFESAVER?
I pondered on this observation
His arrival, whether welcomed in grandiose splendor
or in poverty
was an extended hand of assistance for living
AND for dying.
for you and for me.
Celebrate in health, joy and faith and do ALL things
Merry Christmas to all my splendid friends around the world. NOW GO AND CELEBRATE!!!
