Merry Christmas and a happy celebration of Light to everyone, everywhere!

Birth of Christ

There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises:
Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.
–Luke 2:8-14 The Message (MSG)

And when the child of promise came, a man in snow-white robe appeared to them, and they fell back in fear. The man stood forth and said, Fear not! behold I bring you joyful news. At midnight in a cave in Bethlehem was born the prophet and the king that you have long been waiting for. And then the shepherds all were glad; they felt that all the hills were filled with messengers of light, who said, All glory be to God on high; peace, peace on earth, good will to men.
–Aquarian Gospel 3:10-13

Love Is Born!

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
Sing hosanna! Go bananas!
‘Cause Love is born in this world today!
Share the Sun with everyone,
And lift your heart in praises to the One who lights the way!

1. There’s a Light in this world
That everybody sees
When we put aside the fruits of pride
And let our difference be!
And the Perfect One,
The Precious Sun,
Is born in every human heart
To love and set us free!
Refrain:

2. Maybe you have heard
The Bible’s Word
Of Christ the Lord who came so poor
To make us rich indeed!
Or you could take
Another way;
It doesn’t matter, Love has come
To fill our every need!
Refrain:

3. If the All is One
And One is All,
Then how could Spirit come to some
And let the others fall?
Now your path is bright
With brilliant Light:
The Power of the Universe
Is Love to great and small!
Refrain: (Twice)

Sing hosanna!
And lift your heart in praises to the One who lights the way!

Top 5 Things I Learned from Writing Christmas Cards

This post is a big deal, not because my hand hurts from writing, but because this is the first year I’ve given Christmas cards. I know some people and families who do it every year; I’ve even received some of these cards myself. But I’ve never taken the time to choose them, write them, seal them snuggly in envelopes, put names on them, and send them out into the world to bless others. After this experience I have only one question… Why did I wait so long?

Top 5 Things I Learned from Writing Christmas Cards

5. I have more friends than I thought! And not just a few–with each card written, I thought of another one I could have written.

4. The message sent through your heart and hands is always just the right one.

3. You, unwrapped, unfiltered, undivided, are always the greatest gift!

2. Peace is tangible: You touch it every time you touch someone else.

1. The cost is minimal, while the love is priceless!

So write your Christmas or other holiday (or no holiday!) cards with joy, because that joy will return to sender many times over!

Blessings Be upon You

God bless us!

This does not sound like a Christmas song. Even people surrounded by family and others can feel most isolated at this time of year. And if my prayer list is any indication, people want to feel some glimmer of hope and blessings, now more than ever! That’s why this isn’t a Christmas song, and why most of my holiday songs are more generic–because it’s not only on a holiday that we long to experience something higher than our human thoughts and circumstances! This longing is universal, and Higher Consciousness is, too! And so, may blessings be upon you, now and always!

Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

Blessings Be upon You – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. When times are dark and dreary
And you feel worn and weary,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

2. When every wish you’ve wanted
Is like a haunting hunter,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

3. When careless words are working
To keep you hard and hurting,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain: (Twice)

May the Lord give you peace!

Refrain:
The Lord bless you and keep you
And shine His face upon you.
The Lord be gracious unto you
And give you peace.
The Lord give you peace!

The Time is NOW

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:”*
And talk is all we do;
No wonder we don’t change a thing!
The fear of time and time of fear
Strings us along a string.
The time is now, and now’s the time
To act upon the scene!

*Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872

These are the Days

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
–Attributed to Mahatma Gandhi

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
–Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)

Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
–Matthew 7:12 (NKJV)

No one, regardless of background, race, culture, gender, politics, religion, or other aspects of personal identity, can deny that we need love, light, and peace now! And it’s easy to blame their apparent lack on others! However, at some point we must each take responsibility for our own inner environment. The saying, “Charity begins at home,” also applies to love, light, and peace. They also begin at home–within ourselves.

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
[‘Cause] These are the days of Love;
These are the days of Light!
These are the days of Peace,
So make them the days of your life!

1. You cannot see it now, can you?
If you wonder how, stand firm and true!
Be the Love you need,
Shine the Light you seek;
Give the Peace to bring you through!
Refrain:

2. You cannot do without, can you?
People all around, so sorry and blue.
Be the Love that knows,
Shine the Light that glows;
Give the Peace to change the view!
Refrain:

3. But you cannot heal, can you?
The compassion you feel is the Spirit of Truth!
Be the Love of Christ,
Shine His brilliant Light,
Give the Peace your heart wants too!
Refrain: (Twice)

These are the days of your life!

The Star of Christ in You

Unseen

My face is not made up,
but is bright, expressive, and usually smiling.
My hair isn’t fancy,
but soft, thick, and dare I say attractive?
My voice is the best,
steady and warm,
but the question is…
How does it hide
the scars inside?


A Quadrille in response to De’s “scar” prompt at
dVerse.
I believe the deepest scars are invisible, and that’s why they are scars–because we don’t like to acknowledge them.
