“Christmas is, of course, the time to be home – in heart as well as body.” Garry Moore
Will your Christmas be different this year? Many of us may not be able to visit with family and friends because of the dangers of the virus. Instead of thinking of it as a family time, let’s remember that Mary and Joseph were also away from family when Jesus was born, when his love came into the world.
Regardless of where we are, we can experience Love, the real meaning of Christmas. We can reach out in many ways. A few years ago, my brother and sister-in-law sent my husband and me a Christmas Cactus. It was blooming beautifully, but then it stopped blooming the rest of the year.
I was disappointed, but I kept it around. Then in December when it bloomed again, I realized it only boomed near Christmas!
Unlike many gifts which disappear in one way or another, this is a gift that keeps giving, every year, blooming to remind us at Christmas that love is a gift that keeps giving.
As I lounge by the fire in the evening, I often read, but lately, the fire reminds me of the warmth I’ve experienced in my life when I have been with loved ones. Memories, as well as reality, may warm us, keep us safe, and remind us, God loves us and is aways with us, whether we notice or not.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND LOVE AND PEACE TO YOU ALL!
