Sunday Musings: December 21 2014

From our Muse Family to you and your families

May the season bring your wishes and dreams. May the warmth of all we each hold dearly shine bright and bathe you in its love and strength.

May we never forget the beauty which resides in each precious being.

This one is so easy to write on. All of the caring world must be hoping for peace and joy to all. No exceptions, please.

I wish that all the children will have a blessed Christmas and peace from fear. I wish for peace in America and around the world. I wish that people will love one another, instead of hating each other. I wish for everyone to understand the true meaning of Christmas and the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Imagine a world like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wished for.

Wishing those of you who celebrate Christmas the compliments of the season. To those of you who don't celebrate it I hope you will have time to relax and enjoy the public holiday,

My wishes for the holidays are for families to know the joy of not feeling stress, for children to understand the wisdom of those older than they, for those without to have what they need, and for those with not to feel the pressure to indulge too much. No matter what holiday you celebrate, it is about love and closeness rather than the size or cost of the gift. Rather than an orgy of overindulgence, take the time to find the simplicity of the beauty around you.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the focus was on the message behind Christmas - love and respect for everyone, rather than the shallow trappings which get in the way? Futile, I know, but my wish for Christmas and any other celebrated holidays would be for that.

My wishes for the holidays are that the beef be cooked enough for those who like it that way and yet rare enough for those who like it that way, too. In addition, may the visitors remember what they promised to contribute to the meal in order that we do not have cheese mountains, cream lakes or sprout whirlpools. If Santa were to throw in a glass or two of something sparkling, life would be complete.

Happy Christmas from Scotland.

Thanks for joining us and see you next week!
