The Star that Leads to the Christ Child

On this Eve of the Winter Solstice, I reflect on many things. Two years ago, my life changed in ways I could never have imagined or planned. As I process the many blessings that have come my way, especially in the last couple of weeks, I am amazed at how good God is, and how many are his gifts.

The blanketing of snow we received was a beautiful gift, and an invitation to be still, and silent, and to enter more deeply into the present moment.

Someone posted this on Twitter this morning, and I found it so appropriate:

“Kindness is like snow -
it beautifies everything it covers.”

I leave you with this beautiful poem by Paramahansa Yogananda that I came across this afternoon:

The Star That Leads to the Christ Child

O Lord, I have long been engrossed in material things.
Enthralled by their outward forms,
I failed to perceive within them Thy creative Spirit.
The starry single eye of my soul insight
is now being opened.
Through it may I behold creation
ashine with Thy glory.

Bless me, that I ever see
the Eastern star of wisdom.
May it gleam before my human eyes,
alike in daylight and in gloom.

Let my wise thoughts follow
the wondrous star that leads
to the Christ Chld of Infinity.

~ From: Whispers From Eternity
