Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be singing, just the same as I,
I shall remember you and trim my tree,
And all the time that we must be apart
I am saying all this to you today as a reminder of how precious time is. There is never a good time to waste the precious moments of life that we’ve been given by words of anger, jealousy or gossip. I’ve been taught by a very good teacher (the One whose birthday is coming up) that we are to treasure each and every day.
Lessons learned are hard ones for sure. Dreams and plans may have been shattered. Some days you think you might never be the same. It’s true you won’t be the same person as before. Hopefully you’ll be a better one.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A prayer for meditating on the light of love,
every day of the year ...
Christmas lights shining bright
Remind us of the Birth of Christ.
Opening hearts wide to love
Lets brightened light
Shine from above.
This friends and family time of year
Reminds us each
Of what is dear.
That caring, sharing from our heart
Is true love's action
With kindness uppermost in mind
We always find.
Lighting up our lives this way
Gives Christmas to us
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:
the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
