The reason for the season

IMG_0496Happy Birthday Jesus ❤️
Christmas… I am not a big fan of what it has become. I loved Christmas as a child. It was so uncomplicated back then. I miss the simplicity. I used to love to lay under our tree on Christmas Eve as a little girl and look into the nativity scene with eyes full of wonder. The twinkling lights would cast a soft glow while the melodious sound of silent night was playing in another room. As I lay there I used to wonder what it was like for baby Jesus being born back then. Lying in the manger full of straw. I wondered if he was cold? Did he realize who He was? Did He know how He would change the world? Probably not. I loved that all the animals came to see Him. I believe they knew. Animals always know. Their senses are so much stronger than ours. Of course as a child I used to play with all the figurines too (even though I wasn’t supposed to) creating my own interactive Christmas story. Haha! I had quite an imagination back then and still do. It was so much fun being a kid. Growing up in a simpler time of less was more.
Christmas Eve and waiting for Santa, that was probably the best part though. The excitement of what he would bring… I could hardly contain myself. I was usually the last one to bed. Sleeping with one eye open trying to see if I could catch a peek of the infamous Saint Nick and of course I was also the first one up… At 5am. Being an excitable kid I was told to go back to bed many times over until around 7am my parents would finally give in to my annoying plea of “Please, please, please… Can we get up now? The gifts are waiting!” Oh to be a little person again with such wonder in our eyes and love in our hearts. ☺️ As we grow up some of us seem to let that slip away. Life becomes so serious.
That little child full of love is still inside each and everyone of us. We just need to find him or her and reintroduce them to the world. Letting go of all that is not important. Changing our priorities. Allowing ourselves to let go of what no longer serves our highest good. In doing so life can and will become fun again. We can see things through the eyes of that child we once were and in doing so we can see that Love is the answer to most of life’s difficulties. This world needs more Love❤️❤️❤️ now more than ever.
Things have changed over the years for me. Now Thanksgiving is more my favorite holiday. Less stress. It’s simple really, eat, drink & be Merry❤️ I enjoy being with my family, friends and those I love. During Christmas the excess that people feel obligated to give makes me sad. It should not be about all we give or get. It’s about being surrounded with all those we care for. It’s about Jesus being born. Celebrating Love. It’s about giving to those in need. We all are so fortunate to have so much in our lives. My wish for all of you this Christmas is that everyone’s health be good. For happy smiles to become contagious on the faces of the sad so that we may continue to light up the world all around of us with the glow that resides in our hearts. You never know what someone is going through and it only takes a second to send some love through a thought or a prayer (remember we are all made of energy and energetic thoughts travel quickly)
Try this.. Smile at a stranger. Who knows that stranger may become a friend. The gift of your time could change someone’s life. I believe in this. All of you being here on my page and supporting my healing work while accompanying me on this journey has made a huge impact on who I am as a soul and who I have become, and who I will continue to be. I am grateful for all of your support. It’s is your love, likes, shares and comments that have inspired me to continually post positive quotes, thoughts and photos of the beauty in our world that we all share. We all have the power to heal or the power to hurt. I have come to understand that hurt people, hurt people. It’s plain to see they need more love. Those that are shown unconditional love will grow, evolve and inspire.
I believe we are all God and God is in all of us. Let that sink in for a moment…
We are much more powerful than we actually realize. Thank you for taking this journey with me through this thing called life. I’m so glad you are here❤️
I want to wish everyone a beautiful Holiday season & a very Merry Christmas to all whether you celebrate or not. Take my love, and share it. May God Bless you?❤️?
May there be peace on Earth and good will shown towards all men and women. For only Love conquers all & all things are possible for those who believe❤️
Thank you Jesus for this day. #HappyBirthday
Blessings of Love to all,
