Try With All Your Might
Santa's Taken Flight……
While we are only in the shadow of the birth of Jesus Christ, the
relevance of this big event holds true even today. The meaning
carries such strength and power, and its giving couldn't be
easier. To love, to extend the hand of kindness, to share and
witness what grace has to offer for everyone has significant
meaning. For in giving to others, we gain a sense of peace, quiet
joy, and a feeling of worth. We can't possibly solve the problems
of the entire world, but within our own sphere, we truly have
There are two ways to look at this very stressful thyme called
the HOLIDAY SEASON. You can view it as a super explosion
of stuff that needs to be done, here, there, everywhere, or you
can take a different look, seize the opportunity to view the magic
and spiritualness of the whole thing called Christmas Thyme.
SHARE A LITTLE JOY
KEEP THE SPIRIT
REMEMBER THE TRUE MEANING
So in the interest of HO HO HO and having the MERRIEST, take a
long look around at what you have, what you don't really need, feel
the moment…. deep breath now….ENJOY!

For we need a little Christmas
right this very minute, candles in
the window, carols at the spinet.
And we need a little Christmas
right this very minute….
We need a little Christmas now.

Glad Tidings of Joy. The
countdown has certainly
begun. Are you readying
your home for Christmas?
Remember nature when
pinecones, fruits and nuts,
boxwood, berries, dwarf
shrubs,and topiaries of
rosemary and myrtle.
Think also of cranberries,
spices like cinnamon, anise,
nutmeg, clove and ginger…
so fragrant. Add candles,
lights, poinsettias, and your
house will be transformed
into Christmas wonderland.
Find many pictures and ideas
on Pinterest, in magazines,
and craft shops. You're only
limited by what you want to
Remember pets, keep them
warm while outside, and keep
those bird feeders filled.

December brings to mind many thoughts. Family, holiday fun of
crafting, cooking, and celebrating, decorating the house, sharing
delicious food and drink with friends, remembering memories of
Christmas past, and the most important, commemorating the
birth of Jesus Christ.
With the recent snowfall and drastic drop in temperature, we
had to shift quickly into winter mode, rakes to shovels, sweaters
to heavy coats, and gym shoes to boots. Thoughts of transforming
our homes into Christmas splendor indoors and out took a back
seat. Now it's thyme. Get those lights out, tree up, and stockings
hung…can you believe 22 days until Christmas!
Now no stressing, stay focussed, take a breath…do a little, do what
makes you happy, but remember seasonal calm goes to the top of
the list. But most of all….ENJOY!!
