A Christmas Poem

Last year, I wrote this poem. These were my wishes then, and they are my wishes once again this year, and every year - for you - for me - for all of us!

And so, here it is, one more time...

This Christmas…

Love. Love totally and completely.
Love without restraint.
Love with total abandon.

Forgive. Forgive everything.
Forgive every ancient grudge.
Forgive the Unforgiveable.

Hope. Hope for a better world.
Hope for Peace, and an end to strife.
Give Hope to all in despair.

Dream. Dream the Impossible
Dream. Feed your Dream and
Give it Life. Make it real.

Believe. Believe in the Seen.
Believe in the Unseen.
Believe in the Power of Miracles.

Live. Live fully and Live deeply.
Live with Great Passion. Live
Each moment, as if your last.

Touch. Embrace a loved one.
And a lost one. Embrace them again.
Hold a hurting hand and heart.

Feel. Feel everything. Feel it fully.
Feel the Newness of every moment.
Feel the gift of every day.

Help. Help all those in need.
Help those you know.
Help those you don’t.

Give. Give generously.
Give of your time.
Give of your heart.

Heal. Let go and release.
Heal what no longer serves.
Heal a broken heart.

Repent. Make straight
In the desert a highway.
Be Sorry. Make amends.

Celebrate. Give thanks always.
Celebrate Blessings.
Celebrate Life.

Enjoy. Enter fully into this Season.
Enjoy, and remember
The Reason for the Season!
