Christmas Thoughts

As we approach the birth of our Savior and a new year I am reflecting on this year!

I have been fortunate to publish two books, continue to own and work in my own business, have the love and support of family and friends and enjoy good health.

I am thankful for another year of blessings and want to be sure that I personally keep Christmas about Christ. Everyday is a day that we can choose to be Christ-like…that doesn’t mean that we present our smiling face in a church every Sunday and forget to be kind the rest of the week.

I have been the recipient a few times of someone paying it forward and it felt great. I want to be a person who pays it forward everyday. Paying it forward can be a monetary gift but it can also be a kindness.

Greatest Gift

A Shining Star
Does not waiver
Holds steady for
Kings to come
Not  yet born this 
Storied Savior
The Blessed Promised One

Three Wise men
From Orient lands
Travel to welcome
A King
For-told by prophets
So by faith 
Precious  gifts they bring
Would we believe
Would I follow that star
In this world of  doubt and fear 
Would we have thought it strange
And scoffed at what we now
Hold dear

A child is born in Bethlehem
Below a brilliant star
The Wise Men know
And leaders fear
This babe in swaddling clothes

We remember with
Poignant hymns
The Gift given that day
The King of heaven
The Son of  God
Born on a bed of hay

Thank You and Merry Christmas!
