“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” – Anne Frank
As the race to Christmas and the new year comes to an end, I wish all quiet in the rush and discovery of the depth of the season, of life. Listening to Christmas songs, the words that caught my attention this week and that I really heard for the first time – “God rest ye merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay…O, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy.” We need comfort and joy and in rest, the good tidings that permeate our lives are revealed, as if for the first time.
Dismay not and get caught up in the true meaning of the next week and how it can change your life well beyond a day, beyond the wrapping. And as the new year awakes, may the ornaments that hang on the “tree” of your life be ones that give comfort and joy to you and all those that cross your path and walk beside you on your journey. Ornaments of love, understanding, peace, empathy, enthusiasm, forgiveness, delight and awe. O, tidings.
