‘Tis the Season of Love

‘Tis the Season of Love!

This is because the story of Christmas is a Love story.

It is the story of the Love of Joseph for Mary, the story of the Love of Mary for her newborn son, Jesus. The story of Love for strangers – the shepherds and the wise men, but mostly it is the story of God’s Love for us. 

With the birth of Jesus, it is a reminder that God is Love and that Love wants us to know that we are Loved, that we are whole, and that within us all is God.  It is a reminder to give the Love we have received back into the world.  To allow the Love within us to pour forth from our thoughts, words, and actions and to let Love be the bond between ourselves and each person who touches our lives. 

This is truly the way to celebrate the holiday season – to give our Love to everyone we meet. 

Have a Happy Holiday by sharing your Love with all.

Christmas Love

Tis the season of Love!  There is something about this time of year that brings out the love in people. People are a little kinder, a little more generous, a little friendlier, and a lot more loving.  That is because it is a season in which we celebrate the birth of Love.  

The Christmas story is a story of Love –Mary’s love, Joseph’s love, the Shepherds, the Wise Men, but mostly God’s Love.  It is a time for us to remember that the holiday is not about the gifts, the food, even family, but about a consciousness of God’s Love for us.

This holiday season, be Love in this world.  Give folks a warm smile, a hug, a word of encouragement, and tell someone who may not feel loved – that they are loved! Reach out and be a vehicle of Love and see how it can make the holiday brighter, not just for others, but for yourself as well.

Tis the Season of Love

Tis the Season of Love. It is not just a time to love our families and friends but to love everyone and everything. The birth of Jesus is about Love. The Love that is unconditional, does not judge, does not bargain, and does not have to be earned.

It is about God’s Love for us even though there may be times we may doubt that Love, or unable to experience it, it does not diminish the Love that is ours always. Sometimes we can feel that love when we look at our loved ones or when someone does something so loving to us, we can feel God’s Love through them.

Christmas Love is not about the romantic fickle love we find in fiction but a true, deep, constant Love that is never far. Remember this, whatever is going on in your life, no matter how appearances may seem, God’s Love is enfolding and embracing you.

That is a Love that you can count on, not just during the Christmas holiday but everyday.

“Love’s not always Christmas bells; Sometimes it’s as tough as nails. But one thing you’re sure to find, in the end there’s peace of mind.”
