To Make Music in the Heart

(viewed 3109 times)
'THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS?

It was a time of simplicity and innocence....

Memories flood back at the mere
sound of the songs of the holiday...

Memories that stay with you no matter what age "child"you are.'

( by Allison Chambers Coxsey)


And the best Christmas poem ever by the late Dr. Howard Thurman, a famous civil rights leader and Baptist minister who wrote…

The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace…,
To make music in the heart."

Very Merry Christmas with the wonderful music in your hearts! :)

Day 14: Warm fluffy clouds

(viewed 1152 times)
As it’s still autumn weather I thought this autumn-ie picture would suit the moment. Every night before I go to bed I pass by Tim’s room. Laying there all nice and warm, clinging onto his greasy teddy bear. I stand there looking at him and wonder what his dreams are made of. I always imagine it as warm fluffy clouds in a crayon drawing full of vibrant colours, leaving me with a jealous feeling.

He doesn’t know yet what hatred, incurable diseases or famine are, or why a suicide bomber takes a killing spree in a Christmas marked, why they are here and happening. And to be honest I’m not looking forward to the moment I have to explain this to him, mostly as I haven’t got a clue myself.

My childhood memories of Christmas are probably much like the dreams he is dreaming. We didn’t do presents under the tree as we would get plenty during the 5th of December. But my memories of the two weeks around Christmas are warm, full of love, cuddling around the fireplace, no worries and wishing this time would last for ever.

For this Christmas I wish everyone these feelings and hope they will last a long, long time into the New Year, so that maybe one day we don’t have to explain these things.

A merry Christmas to you all!

Day 13: Roads

(viewed 2384 times)
There are no decorations. There's an austerity, with the bright fragility of thin glass. Life is difficult and there are reminders of that all over this year.

So, wherever you may wander, whatever roads are taken, may they be filled with discovery, growth and wonder for all. Here's to light, love, warmth, health and happiness for each and every one.
