I guess holidays mean different things to different people.
This particular holiday for me is in celebration of our Jesus's birth. We call it a Christmas Day.
As the Christ grew he learned many things. He tried to teach and shepherd many into understanding what humanity is and how important it is to behave since we have the potential to self destruct.
Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men he preached. To all men who believe in his Father.
For he is the Father to us all.
It sounds rather funny that we fight over our prophets and religious leaders, because they are all speaking in the name of the ONE FATHER and his message to all is to live in peace. understand one another, love one another, accept one another. Why do we not hear and understand?
Jesus was no different. Did he exist? Is he a fable? A legend?? Does it matter?
What matters is that to this day we criticize one another as if we did not all have and know THE GOOD THE BAD and THE UGLY.
We demonstrate this when we destroy what is good and replace it with what hurts innocent people, families and children.
When we take pride in sin and the wicked, saying everything is ok, we deny them hearing what is good, gentle and kind. This is what Jesus stood for and loved. Because of his ideas, people come of their own free will, to love him.
We can't help any one if they do not understand why we are protecting them, for we took out the most important person in whose name we are doing all these things for....... the Father,the Son, and the Holy Spirit. For this is who Jesus stood for. This is who he was.
On this day we try to share in the good by greeting each other with joy and gift exchanging as the wise men who followed a star, did, casting away the bad and the ugly from the spirit of mankind, which was, even then, hunting and killing, new born babes.
So on this Note I wish every one a Very Merry Christmas!!!!! May there be enough turkey and cranberries and love feasting at your table . May every day be filled with the spirit of Christmas as you walk through your paths in life.
If only every day were Christmas. What a glorious world this would be. God Bless you all!!! :)
