“It wasn’t the world that changed, it was the way I saw the world that changed. When I realized that, my entire life changed.”
While I was preparing to write this month’s newsletter, a few ideas came to mind. Christmas and the holiday season are on everyone’s mind, so my first thought was to write about the origins of Christmas. As I began to research this, what I read was rather disturbing. It certainly was not the uplifting message I had intended to send.
The second topic idea that came to mind was consumerism, which seems to pervade the holiday season. Along with that often comes the problem of figuring out what to get for whom. That topic, somehow, didn’t feel right either.
The third subject I contemplated was the “Son of God” versus the “God of Sun” conundrum.
The blending of Pagan and Christian rituals brought me back to my first topic, and some of the same information regarding the origins surfaced in my research.
Finally, I thought of who actually reads this newsletter – You. All of you have in some ways touched my heart and soul.
So this holiday season, I decided to share with you, a list of my favorite reminders of the beauty you all hold within.
