Thoughts as Christmas Nears

Posted by gayingram on December 20, 2009 at 1:53 PM

Only five more days until Christmas - it can't come any sooner as far as I'm concerned. This may turn out to be the grumblings of a curmudgeon, but read on.


The 'joys' of the season have been bombarding us since the beginning of November what with the resonating of Christmas music in all its various mutations from sublime to rediculous and the incessant visuals emitting from our televisions urging us to save money by buying...huh?


But in the midst of all the noise and humbug, if you listen carefully you can tune into the message of good news that all this hinges upon.


Christ did come as a Babe that long ago time - the Son of God incarnate as a human for the sole purpose of paying the cost so we could have the choice to re-establish connection with the Source of all our being.


It's a simple message yet when accepted with a willing heart, will affect your life profoundly.


So, in the midst of this firestorm of commerciality this world presents as their version of "good news", find a quiet place, sit with open heart and receive the One who came to give His all so you could become a channel of His Love.


And that's my wish for all --- let Love for others be the guiding light of your life.

Those words you spoke of are really sinking in, Gay. For the past few days there's been chaos, noise, and hustle-bustle around San Antonio. I am going to take your words and find that quiet place and open my heart.

I'm enjoying reading your messages in which you share the "things" that are happening with you and your family. Nice to have faces to go with the sister's names that you told be about all those years ago in Texas when we talked so much.

Hope this year of 2010 is filled with contentment, peace, and joy and by all means good health for you and Paul.
