On the peaks of life-leaped springs, the divine

In plateaus and valleys lies life’s designs

All that qualifies them, in parts and whole

Rises to the wonderment beyond our control

In preparation for the expected days ahead

When we’ll gather with families and friends,

In celebration of a day, we wish wouldn’t end

In honor of Christ, who called us His friend,

And a reminder of the processes of life,

Through Him, we come to know what it is to love

Therefore, let’s not lose sight of the importance of Him

within our events

And in those exchanges and even different approaches,

Highlight countless possibilities of good and, hopefully, His love

In honor of Christ, our divine, whose birthday we come to celebrate.

As we are fast approaching the Christmas holiday, besides its festivities’ within our shared outlook for the holiday, it’s also a time to pause and reassert the premise upon which we celebrate December 25th across the globe. It’s a time not to overlook the least noticeable by reflecting on what Christ taught while He lived here as a man! As stated in Matthew 25: 37-40, “If you have done unto the least among my brethren, you have done it unto me.”

It’s a good time to mend fences and forgive. I know there are some people we must learn to forgive but love from a distance. The most important thing is our heart! Not bearing malice or bitterness towards anyone because love begins with God, self, and others, also knowing we can only try to do what’s best for all involved. Peace!

To my Jewish family, please accept my apologies for the memory lapse in stating the incorrect holiday yesterday. This month is the celebration of Hanukkah, which I have partaken in many times! So please forgive me for the error. May Hanukkah, which is a feast of dedication or what is also known as the festival of lights be a time of fulfillment for you! Marjorie
