Be at peace just now. Rest and still the mind. Avoid the angst of crowded malls and spend time in quiet stillness in nature. Whether it be admiring a beautiful sunset or watching the surf roll in. Or gazing at the flickering flames of a warm hearth. Enjoy the moment in gratitude for all the wonderful gifts of the Creator. The message of Christmas is simple. A child is born in a lowly manger to be the Light of the World. May the Christ be born in each of us as we draw close to His presence during these holy days.
