Busy Hands, Busy Hearts

I sense some busy-work being done. Scurrying here and there. Packaging and organizing. Busy hands. Busy hearts.

What is all of this activity about? The upcoming holidays. Many races and many religions have a special day coming. Many of our loved ones passed are near us at this time of year.

What is your wish? What is that special thing you would like? Who would you like to have a visit from? What is your special celebration that you enjoy from year to year?

There is so much to consider when planning for the holidays. The most important thing is to be thankful. We have so much to be thankful for. Hopefully, we have good health, a nice home, a good income, close friends and family.

If we don’t have a comfortable life, then what? Continue to have faith. Pray for what is lacking in your life. Wish for others what you wish for yourself. Offer joy and love freely. Spend time with those in need especially if you don’t have money to spare.

The world will benefit from your good intentions and outpouring of love. Think of ages gone by. Did we have to provide gifts of excess and wealth? No. We gave homemade items or baked goods. We gathered together and brought what we had to share whether it was bountiful or sparse. The true joy of the holidays is spending time with your loved ones. Don’t get caught up in the rhetoric.

The world will benefit from all of the joy and good wishes we share. Send out the best intentions. Give and receive holiday cheer. Look closely at the inception of this holiday season. Why did we start this celebration to begin with? What makes this day or time special?

This is a grand time to give and to receive. Love is free. A smile will go a long way. Be humble and thankful. Remember the origin of this special time of year. How far astray have we gone from the original intent? 

Gather with your loved ones and send blessings out into the world. Pray for those in need and less fortunate than ourselves.

We are one under God, Amen.
