Third Week of Advent


The third week of advent has begun.
 
As we inch closer to Christmas Day, may you feel deep peace within your heart.

May you feel the presence of angels, surrounding you with gentleness, protection, and love.

In this most holy of seasons, may we let go of all anger and resentments.


For only then can we truly welcome the new Messiah, the infant King, with immense love. 

HOW DO YOU FORGIVE SOMEONE WHO HAS HURT YOU? CAN YOU TELL US?

Christmas Luncheon By a Lake


About four years ago, it was a real pleasure to join a book club.

The members are all nice women with varied backgrounds.

We have the love of books as our common thread.



Every year, we plan a Christmas luncheon and exchange small gifts.

This year, it was at a newly remodeled restaurant that overlooks a beautiful, frozen lake.


The luncheon was a gift of Christmas.

I had a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, shaved pickles, and chips. (The sliced onions got left on the plate.)



While the food was good, the vistas outside the windows were even better.

NAME ONE UNEXPECTED GIFT YOU HAVE RECEIVED SO FAR THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON.

Relax........


Relaxing by the fireplace at night is one of the gifts of Christmas.

The nearby Christmas tree, with its white and pink lights, glows and sparkles as it slowly spins around.


There are still dozens of things that need doing before Christmas but they all get put on hold during peaceful moments.


No matter what is transpiring in the world or what pain and sorrows might surface during this season, the peaceful moments soothe the soul.

It is important to leave time for peaceful moments.

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO RELAX FROM THE STRESSES OF THE SEASON?
