“Christmas, as we know it, is a symbol, a recognition, a flower on the altar, a bow in passing. It says a tiny yes to the dream, it sings a little song…. ”
I hope each of you heard your Christmas song and that it gave you hope for the New Year!
Approaching the New Year (Stranger)
“To approach the stranger is to invite the unexpected, release a new force, let the genie out of the bottle. It is to start a new train of events that is beyond your control…”
What does the shadow of the New Year hold for you? Don’t list your goals or resolutions for you have no control over your future. Your future has control over you…
In the future, there are no promises, no problems, only possiblities. What NEWNESS is possible?
It is the mystery of a New Year and New Hopes and New Creativity that should excite and frighten you. What force of creative energy will it release?

|You Are a Traditional Christmas Tree|
For a good Christmas, you don’t have to re-invent the wheel.
You already have traditions, foods, and special things you bring out every year.
curled on the couch
stripped socks, black pajamas
holding in the loss
Christmas lights sparkle
eyes watching the past stream
past the rented movie
Holiday plots and plans
cold fog wresting the sun
The tree is so dry, so brittle
no water will go past the sap
no joy fills the soul
laptop warms to the touch
power cords crowd the socket
sweet music swallows sour
thoughts, memories, days
songs of hope and comfort
comfort and joy!
Parable of the Pencil : Source unknown
The pencil maker took the pencil aside just before putting him into the box.There are 5 things you need to know, he told the pencil before I end you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget and you will become the best pencil you can be.
You will be able to do many great things , but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.
You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you will need it to become a better pencil.
You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.
The most important part of you will always be what is inside.
On every surface you are used on , you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition , you must continue to write.
The pencil understood and promised to remember and went into the box with purpose in its heart.
