Only human beings have the power to imagine a future that could be different from the present.

December 21ST - a good imagination

Christmas is best pondered, not with logic, but with imagination.

Max Lucado

Christmas is a time of imagination. Santa, reindeer, elves, a singing snowman are just some of the products of our imaginations.  A great deal of mystery and wonderment builds as children across the globe await Christmas.  

Imagination creates a world full of gingerbread house, mounds of presents, the  North Poll and sleighs loaded with toys. Imagination is a God given gift that is vital  and useful for adults too as we reflect on the mysteries of Christmas.  How the Angels sang the glory of God, while shepherds watched over their flocks.  How the story of Christmas evolves in our hearts. 

The Christmas story has been told over and over and sparkes our hearts to be more loving and giving.  Without it Christmas wouldn’t be quite the same.
Christmas carols bring to mind images. They might be associated with nativity plays and children snug in their beds.  They proclaim the hopes and fears of all the years of all the years are met in thee tonight.

We need to imagine possibilities of a better world.  Inventors imagine  inventions before they become household necessities, chefs imagine tastes before serving them to their guests. Imagination is the seed of creative thought.  To think beyond ourselves, more imagination is the ticket to solving problems. Without imaginations people would cease to hope and plan.  Things won’t happen if we don’t imagine the possibilities in the first place.

Imagination costs nothing.  We all have the resource available, so lets use it to make our days a little more merry and bright.

What is Christmas?  It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.

Yep, I think IMAGINATION belongs right up there with Love and all good things. As a child I used to imagine for hours (much to my teachers' dismay); but lost it somewhere along the way of adult-ing.
I've not picked a word for the New Year in some time … but I think this is just the ticket.


i love this post. "Imagination is the seed of creative thought." So much can be accomplished when we work together to make a better world.
