Christmas Love

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year, mainly for the egg nog and peppermint bark. Why I love Christmas the most is how humanity opens up their heart and gives of themselves. All the random acts of giving, bearing witness too and participating. Giving is why we are here.

In my adult years, friends and family have always asked me what I wanted for Christmas, because I found out I'm picky and difficult to shop for, (laughing). And there have been friends and family who told me what they wanted for Christmas, but I knew them well enough get them what they would love, and sometimes I would ask.

In my 20's I had a pretty good idea and made suggestions of what I wanted for Christmas. As I got closer to my 30's and in them, I appreciated the novelty of my youth of surprises. I still love surprises. And remembering the simpler days as a child making cards or little gifts for mom, with construction paper, glitter, and glue. Those were the days I loved the most.

Take time in this season to create it with love. Whether if it's a call, a visit, or time alone, know it's filled and shared with love.

Having Christmas 

A moment caught of peace
A peace paused from life hustle and bustle
Energy flowing to all wishes
Manifested by Santa
You 

We are the gifts aspired desired
Sharing gifts
Sharing the love of each other
What matters most is of your choosing
Having a list of who’s naughty and nice

Paying a price
Meeting expectations
Surpassing morals for a seasonal cause
Is the you all year long 

What is it we choose
What is it we value
Moods change
Values swayed
Hearts jingle 

Giving from a place of love
Knowing what is needed
Angels guiding moments of inspiration
Taking action to fill hearts 

One day to feel special
A year to notice the love
A moment to know the truth
Time to celebrate a Master of Love
Celebrate the Master in each of you 

A day no longer needed
Always have your heart be noticed
Celebrate always the love expressed
We are Christmas all year long 

Allow grace to fill the heart
May you feel the gift of love ever present
Glowing peace is silent moving the soul
Divinity is our gift from God to one another

As ever Hillis--your words, both poetry and prose, touch me so deeply.

Your recall of hand-making Cristmas cards for your mom as a youngster brought back the tenderest memories for me (as well). Funny how I/we can FEEL the love in our heart and the pride in what we were creating all these decades later. If there was one feeling I could "bottle" year round it would be the delight of that child (me) creating/spreading joy with a heart full of love and appreciation, believing I was creating the most perfect gift ever for my beloved mom. WOW!!! Thank you for this beautiful memory :)

I have read "Having Christmas" many many times and each time I understand and feel it at a new level. You are amazing!!!

Best Holiday Wishes to you and All :)

Love,
Keryn
