The Story is “Ours to Write”

These days before Christmas are spent in many hours of preparation. We busy ourselves planning the many aspects of the holiday season – decorating trees, writing cards, cooking family recipes and gift shopping. Weeks, days and hours are spent in anticipation. But as high as the build up, so low is the let down. I think we all have experienced the dashed hopes and shattered expectations as we flip the calendar month to the New Year. But let’s remember that the celebration of Christmas is not the end of the season – it’s the beginning. It’s the linchpin for the rest of the year and the rest of our lives. Christmas merely prepares our hearts and minds showing us the way to find the Lord every day. This Christmas season brings us grace to see our surroundings with “new eyes”. Christmas doesn’t merely happen on the outside, but on the inside. When we have taken in the Christmas message, we now understand what is of REAL importance. We have prepared to choose what to see and what to ignore. The message of the holiday, “Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men”, will help us see through all the contradictory surface data and into the hearts of others, recognizing them as brothers and friends. The Lord is dwelling here in our midst, where he has always been showing himself to each of us in diverse and subtle ways every day. Some of us will recognize his face and invite him inside because we have prepared our hearts and made them receptive. Some of us on the other hand, will see... read more

Are You a Miracle Seeker?

Tis the Season for merriment! Just look around at the decorations, carols, and parties, all building excitement. “Never forget that anticipation is an important part of life. Work’s important, family’s important, but without excitement, you have nothing. You’re cheating yourself if you refuse to enjoy what’s coming.” Nicholas Sparks We’ve all seen the bumper sticker: “Expect a miracle.” We need to anticipate the miracles that surround our daily lives, not only in this “month of merriment”! We need to build the joyful exuberance of hope and sing about the expectation of a miracle in the gift of another day. We need to be Miracles Seekers! Miracles Seekers anticipate each day. Before our feet even hit the ground, we ready our minds for another inspiring day. “Thank you, Lord, for another grand and glorious day.” Wonder fills our intellects with the potential of marvelous adventures God has planned. Anticipation of the yearning for something good to come acts as a powerful tool for happiness. Research shows us that more happiness comes from the anticipation and planning of the vacation than the actual trip itself. The study even determined that the benefits of napping in bringing down a person’s blood pressure are brought about beforehand merely by the anticipation of the nap rather than the actual siesta. Miracle Seekers adopt an attitude of intent: they want to see, expect to see, and intend to see everything working for the highest good during the day. Maintaining this attitude throughout the day will insure that you don’t get bogged down in the negativity of errands, meetings, appointments, and lengthy to-do lists. So as... read more

Lighting Your Way Through the Holiday Season

We are now in full “holiday mode” – planning, preparing and plotting how to make this celebration perfect. So much time and energy we expend chasing the “to do” list. We are so busy getting caught up in the hustle and bustle that we sometimes miss the best part. We see events, but don’t get their meaning; we hear the words, but don’t grasp their significance. We often stay stuck where we are and don’t grow. Think of all the wonderful things that happen to us every day: the sunrise, the freshness after a rain, the smell of a rose, a small kindness, laughter, a hug, a winter fire, a new idea, an old friend. We have so many lights to light our day teaching us that life is a blessing, and that our good God is with us for sure. So many lights that go unnoticed and unnamed. Sad things and hard things may also come into our daily lives. They too, have much to teach us. Our failures, our bodily pains, our pains of the spirit, our disappointments and our losses, our grieving and our weeping: these are part of all our lives and God does not shield us from their pain. But in each – no matter how terrible, is an invitation to life, an invitation from God to become more: more whole, more true, and more happy. And hidden there along with the invitation is always God’s promise to give us all the power and strength that are needed. But, too often we sleep through these messages. And their light does not lighten our darkness.... read more
