“The best gifts are wrapped in love and tied with heartstrings.”
~ Leap of Faith
Christmas is the season of wishes and dreams of wonder. It is in that spirit that I invite you to join me in creating a living symbol of the goodness surrounding us as well as the beauty it reflects.
If we only pull together we can build a gigantic Christmas tree designed and adorned by the power of love. We can trim it with people of all sizes and colors and light it with the brilliance of their imaginative ideas. The gifts we place underneath the tree can be plentiful because there is more than enough for everyone.
A white gift box contains Peace of Mind and a pink one Health. Talent and Abundance burst from confined packages like multicolored confetti! Faith, Hope, and Love bask in the glow of gold and silver, and a bright yellow gift opens up Enlightenment. Contentment? That one is wrapped in many different colors and designs.
At the very top of the tree, we can place a brightly shining star to illumine each gift, each life and each open door and call our star Freedom of Choice.
The largest gift of all is an unfilled box of Christmas Spirit. By putting ourselves into that box, it is possible to fill it with food for hungry people, solutions for drug and ecology issues and freedom for those still living behind walls of fear, hate, and ignorance.
Charles Dickens wrote, “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
If we wrap up just that one thought, tie it with our heartstrings and place it under our tree, the world will have one Dickens of a Christmas!
