Love the moment, and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
December 2nd - love lasts a long long time
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke
Before the invention of mirrors or polished surfaces, people rarely saw themselves. Puddles of water, streams, and rivers were one of the few ways they could see their own reflection. But mirrors changed that. And the invention of cameras took fascination with our looks to a whole new level. We now have lasting images of ourselves from any given time throughout our entire life. This is good for making scrapbooks and keeping family histories. Memories that will last a lifetime.
However the fun of seeing ourselves on camera can keep us focused on outward appearance and leave us with little interest in examining our inner selves. It’s true we tend to take pictures of the happy times in our lives, but we all know that into each life some rain must fall too.
As we decorate for Christmas and plan all the festivities for this season, let us not forget the Reason for the Season and look to that promised future and walk the path necessary to get there. Let’s prepare our hearts as carefully as that special meal and the fantastic tree with a star atop glowing with hope and anticipation of what is to come!
