Another Christmas, a precious gift to celebrate.
More so in the midst of many precautions, daily updates on the stricken and departed. Amidst a time of political divisiveness, the nation split down the middle by ideological differences. Families, neighbors, communities divided by contradictions and perceived inequalities. Lack of trust in media pursuing questionable agendas. The meaning of Christmas never so necessary.
A time of promise if one knows where to seek forgiveness, confirmation of hope and self-worth. Christmas arriving at a time when people need it most. A pause in the daily activities, a time to turn inward, to refocus on the family, relationships, the basic needs. Cherishing the time one has been given, looking back at the good times, enjoying the moment, optimism for better times in the future.
Thankful that a heavenly father sent a son to earth as an example and with messages that continue to endure with the continuing prevalence of human frailties.
Merry Christmas to all.
