Our family believes that you don’t need to go to a church to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. We believe that it is something that you should show daily by your actions, your deeds, and your character, at Christmas and all the year through.
Heraclitus pretty well summed it up when he said:
“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny – it is the light that guides your way.”
At Christmas our thoughts go to helping others even more than usual. This morning I was in a situation where I was able to help a stranger in need. I feel so blessed to have found the opportunity to do something within my reach. Such a small effort on my part made such a big impact for someone else. My daughter Lillie talked about our new friend Charles a lot today. I hope Charles and his grandson had a great time making their red velvet cake together. It feels really good to do nice things. If you don’t do it already, try it. You will like it.
P.S. Happy Birthday Lois.
