I dedicate this to Marsha! ;-)
Thanks to Marsha Elliot
for sharing her beautiful words with us and for giving me permission to paste it here:
FOR A MOMENT
During the Christmas season, the world becomes a magical place. Neighborhoods take on a cheery glow with bright colored lights, the air smells of savory spices, there’s joyful music all around, & there’s children laughing & playing – looking with great expectation for the arrival of Christmas morn to receive their gifts. Just for a moment, the world becomes a sweeter place. For a moment, we all love more, give more, care more as we go beyond ourselves. And the hurts, sickness, disappointments & pain of this life become non-existent, for a moment.

Then we still out hearts & reflect on the greatest event known to mankind when the world became a magical place some 2000 years ago. The stars were the neighborhood lights that led the shepherds to a stable where they found the baby Jesus lying in a manger. The savory spices were frankensence & myrrh & gifts of gold fit for a king – our King! And strains of joyful music filled the air as the angels proclaimed the birth of the Christ child. The great expectation of the prophets of old was fulfilled that first Christmas morn. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

LOVE – PEACE – JOY to all of you this Christmas Season.
