One of the themes that goes along with the Christmas time of year is Peace On Earth. Besides no wars between nations as a great goal, carrying inner peace in times of turmoil and problems and SPREADING that to others is a worthwhile endeavor.
Spread the peace. People will appreciate your presence and wonderfully immerse themself in your present of calm.
Problems continue 24/7 despite holidays. We see them, we experience our own share. Traffic accident deaths, bursted appendix, chemotherapy for children, short term lifespan outlook with pancreatic cancer, hospice care, missing a loved one who is gone this year or revisitimg their memories. An unexpected illness that detours your travel itinerary. A store worker I overheard worked real hard all day yesterday and woke to a flat tire this morning. The life condition. But we plow on. We need to remain "at peace". God is still there. The message of the season is GOD WITH US. Enjoy the festivities as you may, but carry that peace with you NO MATTER WHAT happens to you. Merry Christmas to all my readers and happy holidays to those who celebrate something else. I tell you, you are special to me.
