During this joyous time of festive celebration, comes a life of dear, immortal being. A life of wonder, of hope, of salvation. A gift to this great planet and joy to all who know it.
In the quiet of winter, when the snow lies on the ground, when the deep chill of cold, freezes our blood, and hurries us along the street to our cozy homes, comes a time of celebration and fun. Gifts are purchased, goodwill is upon us. A treasure of wealth in human compassion leaps to the forefront of our ways. Donations to the poor and hampers of food. We shine at this time of year. We are happy and filled with joy. This is that special, high holiday time, when the blessings of a savior and the memory of a holy birth remind us of the joy of giving . A gift. A life of cherished teachings. A life of inspiration and a life of generosity.
Life, birth, creation. Each and every one of us contains that gift of life. A miracle of the wonder of creation. It is a reminder to us, during these happy days, that a child of magnificence came into our world. Praises and glory, mighty and immortal. A child of greatness, born in a stable. Kindness to the creatures of the Earth. The heavenly Angels sing in praises, the majesty of kings, who know the wisdom, the Shepherds who follow the star, the animals who watch in silence. The Heavens and the Earth are filled with gladness. This is an event for us all.
Teachings of wisdom for those great minds. Teachings of wonder that compel the masses, teachings of acceptance to all who witness. Teachings of compassion to the animals who watch in silence. All of the creatures great and small. All of the life on this great planet.
The adored! The wonder of immaculate birth. The joy of a being, so divine. All encompassing love. All needed creation. The spirit of life shines in us and the spirit of love is within us.
Holy child of divine conception, holy child of life immortal. The breath of these teachings fills our world and the joy of creation fills our senses.
Oh happy life that gives us caring. A happy life with the gift of giving, community, hope and mutual sharing. Mutual sharing of bread and food. Mutual sharing of holiday gifts. Mutual sharing of a supportive community. The light of life that makes us smile, that brings a treasure of support and acceptance. Oh happy world, where we are all human beings, where race and color vanishes to oblivion. Oh happy world where the creatures sing, oh glory, glory to this king.
We are all the creation of a God most high, whose intellect and benevolence nurtures our being.
Hail, you almighty persons of this planet. Join with us in this season’s celebrations. Kind and caring, end the suffering, the plight of the homeless, the less fortunate, the poor. Our holiday wishes are to bring an end to starvation and poverty.
Peace on Earth, the Angels and all of creation sing.
