Once again it is that time of year, December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas, but what is the real meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, stockings hanging in the living room, the cards in the mail, the lights in the windows, Christmas dinner with family and friends, snow in the yard, or is it the shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass by on the streets? For many people, Christmas is a time of sadness. Some people do not have the extra money to buy gifts for their family, children, and friends. Many are saddened at Christmas-time when they are reminded of their loved ones who will not be able to come home for a variety of reasons. Christmas dinner may be only a desire and not a reality for some. Nevertheless, Christmas can be a season of great joy. It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. Let this Christmas season and New Year, be a time for healing, forgiveness, and renewed strength. If you have decided to make any New Year’s resolutions; before you make a declaration, begin with healing, forgiveness, and a renewed strength. For me this is like a reboot of your mind, body and spirit.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.
