I love to love and celebrate Love.

I shine the Light within me.

Sharing the Light and Love is a gift to me everyday.

I give the Love I Am in every thought I have, words I say and deeds I do.

The Light In You

We each see the holiday of Christ Mass in our own tradition, beliefs and best understanding.

Each one of us practice the light within this time of year and the giving of Love and often celebration.

We all are on our own journey of remembrance and awakening to the Light within us and around us.

We may have glimpse in healing works, a child’s innocence, a kind connection or gentle hug.

We can be reminded with scriptural reminders, a candle-lighting ceremony or songs of joy.

With a hymn of gratitude, people sharing a meal or Christmas gifts, we can awaken to the real Light.

Light, energy, creation, giving, consciousness, all live within us. 

Light or creative energy is our gift of Love from God, the Creator, the Universe and Great Mystery.

I know we all have different beliefs.

I know we all celebrate in different ways.

I know what causes joy to some may bring up unhappy memories to others.

We have the choice to rejoice or grieve in our loneliness.

Traditions can be changed and rearranged.

What use to be one celebration with a united family may now be juggling many or none.

From divorce, aging and death, rejection and abandonment, there may be separation and devastation.

Consider creating your own family celebration with others just like you.

So what do I do?

Plan to have enlightened connections and conversations each day of the year.

Consider what you want to do and invite others to join you.

Reach out to someone who has no one and make them feel welcomed and loved.

Find what works best for you.

Watching a show on television to inspire you.

Bringing some extra cheer to those working on Christmas Day.

Taking a neighbor some homemade goodies or hot meal.

Singing favorite songs or carols aloud with happy past memories.

Making phone calls to friends and family you haven’t seen in years.

Visiting a nursing home on Christmas day to share some joy with staff and residents.

Writing cards of Gratitude and love to those you miss.

It takes so little to do so much.

Everyone can benefit from your prayer.

Everyone will feel the caring in your share.

Everyone will know the love you are giving.

Each human being has value.

Everyone deserves to know their worth.

Continue to love all beginning with you.

Be kind to others today and everyday and you will know the Light in You.

Loving you as I receive your Love for me and all,

Betty Lue
