Welcome December

~ A month of lights, snow and feasts; time to make amends and tie loose ends; finish off what you started and hope your wishes come true ~


All the hearts go home for Christmas

Across the miles and years

To live again the age-old joys

That passing time endears.


The ones who mean the most to us

are sometimes far away -

But still, they're close

in heart and thought

on days like Christmas Day.


Wishing you a Merry Christmas

and Happy Holiday!

Big picture

Snow is a beautiful natural phenomenon that typically heralds the coming of winter and represents the change of the seasons. It inspires excitement for the holidays and nostalgia for childhoods spent enjoying the magic of every snowflake.

Dreaming of snow is mysterious and magical. Winter and snow are a time of hibernation in relation to our inner being. Snow dreams are a symbol of spiritual awakening and inner awareness. It is the season of winter when the spirit gradually releases itself from daily, earthly concerns. Snow dreams allow us to forget the rules of space and time, allowing us to travel to a distant faraway land - even if we have never been there physically. The dream can be connected to our emotions due to the frozen crystalline water that is made within the snow life cycle.

Family

-I experience the joy of Spirit with every smile


If I’m listening to the sound of laughter, the vibrations have a positive effect on me and I can’t help but smile. Seeing children at play inspires me to tap into my inner joy. I happen upon an act of kindness or a beautiful scene and wear the joy I feel as a smile.

Smiling is natural to me and is one of my favorite spiritual tools. A smile can turn a challenging day around. A moment of good cheer can brighten a murky outlook. I take a quiet moment in prayerful contemplation to remember some of the things that make me smile. As I think of those things, my countenance is filled with light, and I am beaming.

Joy is a wondrous way to express my feelings. I feel joyful down to my bones, and my cells dance with delight. I feel blessed and I smile!

Peace is an enduring spiritual theme, especially this time of year. Calls for peace are everywhere-on decorations, in commercials, and on Christmas cards. We sing about peace. We wish for it and we call on our spirits. And yet the peace we crave eludes us.

Maybe we are asking wrongly when we seek peace outside ourselves without first knowing it within. We already have perfect peace within us. We don’t need to create it, but we do need to claim it. The beauty and simplicity of that idea is perfectly expressed in the song Let There Be Peace on Earth.

Although it is a well-known staple throughout the world not everyone is aware of this beloved song’s origins. In the summer of 1955, lyricist Jill Jackson-Miller and her musician husband Sy listened to a radio program featuring the idea that for peace to become a reality it must first be in the hearts and practice of the individual. She said she woke up one morning with the phrase “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”

I have heard “Let There Be Peace on Earth” thousands of times and never grow weary of it. Each time I hear it, it seems to affirm my commitment to bring about a peaceful planet and the awareness that the power to create lasting peace must begin in my heart.


While the month of December has set in I had to reflect on the past few days as Thanksgiving sometimes takes a back seat to the upcoming holiday. For our family Thanksgiving is a day of gratitude and togetherness. It is meant to be about family and being thankful for everything that we have. It is a time to take a hand to those dearest to you and celebrate another year of all the great things that have taken place. A time not to lose the true meaning, not to stress out in the preparation and to focus on laughing and being in the essence of family. Thanksgiving is a special time of the year. Whatever it means to you, whether it is a spiritual time, a little stressful, or highly enjoyable, I hope you were able to seize the moment.

As we entered into November we started our talks of whether to go south and visit relatives or stay home and enjoy the day with friends. We have a senior Great Dane and it is hard to find a place to house her when we are away. That played a major course in the route that we took which was staying at home. The month was an unusually calm month for our family. Our son was up to date on all school assignments and looking forward to the 5-day break. Right before the break he was required to do a job shadow assignment. He chose to shadow the owner of a contracted postal service. He came home with questions intrigued about how logistically everything moves. Preparation for Thanksgiving at home this year was a bit more tedious than previous years with shelves not properly stocked and having to go from store to store to find items needed. All in all, we made it happen. Thanksgiving Day arrived with the family watching the Thanksgiving Day parade in New York. We eagerly awaited guests while finishing up the final touches for Lunch. The Blueberry Crisp, Cherry and Pumpkin Pies were chilling while the pecan fudge was being cut for appetizers. Prior to lunch we all stood near while each of us gave gratitude for one thing thankful in our lives over the past year.

As I welcome you into the new month and last month of the year I have to say I cannot believe we are here. I have enjoyed and loved every moment of 2021. Thank you, my dear friend, for holding my hand and walking with me through these amazing times.


With Love,

Ed

Tarot of the Month

Ed,

The month of December brings more awareness spiritually than any other month. More people contemplate their belief and faith to a "Higher Power". Be excited we are all connecting. perfect time to contemplate 2021.


The three cards pulled are for the 31 days. The first card being the first ten days, the second card being the next ten days, and the last card being the remaining eleven days. (Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz)


1st Card: King of Swords:

This determined fairy king embodies power, intelligence, and an untamable will. Austere but elegant, he holds his sword high, symbolizing his power, command and authority. Like the card itself, he represents caution, rigor, obedience to rules and order. The wolf at his side denotes prudence, wisdom, protection, and independence. Divinatory Meanings: An authoritarian but just man. Constancy, decision, safety and experience. An active and determined person. An analytical mind, some coldness in feelings. A cruel and very critical being, unscrupulous but clever and impossible to defy. Conflicts and sorrows.

2nd Card: Strength

his young fairy lying next to a lion cub is the image of grace and purity. With her hand, she effortlessly tames the lion cub, an emblem of ardor and devouring force. Once tamed, this force becomes an instrument of transformation for the young fairy. She is mistress of her own fate because of her inner quiet force and her power of attraction. The lion cub, calmed and placated, seems to subject itself without aggression. Together they face any danger, allowing intelligence to override brute force. This magnetic and radiant fairy incarnates the triumph of man over primary instincts. She teaches us how to find this force and use it to control the animal within us. Divinatory Meanings: Courage, self-control, faith in oneself, ambitions, energy, achievements. Strong passion, fidelity, sincerity, intense love. A solid situation, profits, easy victories. Weakness, failures, regression, but also excess, violence, egocentric attitudes, pride, impulsiveness, abuse of power. In love, possessiveness and selfishness.

3rd Card: Seven of Swords: This male fairy with his arms loaded with swords, represents hope after a long struggle. All depends on his will and determination. His road is still difficult; there are four more heavy swords to be carried. The white clouds banking over the horizon announce brighter prospects. Divinatory Meanings: Perseverance, hope, new plans, tricks and uncertainty. Dedicated effort to obtain victory. A weak and emotional situation, discussions and slanders, blame, quarrels, treasons and paranoia. Difficulties, but not insurmountable. Great efforts.

Questions and Counsel

Dear Katelyn,

I’m stick. I’m not where I want to be but I don’t know how to move forward. What does, if anything, does Spirit have to say?

Hi!

Good news - you’re stuck! Great news actually. Being stuck is an opportunity for us to find stillness and to be asking ourselves the questions we need answers to. Start inviting new energy into your space and movement by moving small things around your house; rearrange future, organize, get rid of things. This provides new energy and a new perspective to help unstick you. If you’re stuck you might want to start using the time to get comfortable in your aloneness. Find peace within yourself, keep in mind you already have everything within you.

Nothing is forever, even feeling stuck. Which leads me to another point, is it stuckness you’re feeling or stillness? Sometimes Spirit provides us with stillness right before things begin to amp up in our life.

Whether it’s stuckness or stillness it is still a great opportunity for you to find movement without self and outside self. You are in control of being stuck.

And as always, if you are willing to do the work it always works out.

Katelyn

- May you never be to grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve


Dear Santa,

I have been feeling cynical lately, and my list for this old world has taken on the look of Christmas lampoon rather than a heartfelt letter to you.

So, in search of the true Christmas spirit, I decided to pull up one of the most famous editorials ever written, "Is there a Santa Claus?" It is largely recognized by this phrase: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."

Seems like 8-year-old Virginia was having a case of the doubts. It must have been a bad case because that was way back in 1897, when neither the internet nor Grinches had any place in our vocabulary. She decided to write her first letter, not to you St. Nick, but rather to the editor of The New York Sun.


Dear Editor,

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon

Now, I like to believe that editors can be reliable resources, and Francis Pharcellus Church (what a great name) did not disappoint, although he was perhaps one of the least likely fellows to be talking on your behalf. In fact, he was so against writing the editorial he refused to have his name attached anywhere or in any way. What a blunder. More than a century later it is the most reprinted editorial in any newspaper in the English language.

My favorite part of the editorial goes:

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence.

We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.


Within those words I found my answer. I only need to find that external light that filled my childhood. And it didn't take long. I can see my Christmas of 1972 as clearly as it was yesterday. True confessions, Santa, in the middle of the night after you had visited our drafty, one-story apartment I crept into the living room. The cedar tree was alight with those big multicolored bulbs and tinsel hung in straight, icy columns. It was a beautiful tree in the eye of a child, certainly the most beautiful a 7-year-old could ever imagine.

Under the tree, way in the back, I spotted a wrapped outline of a very oversized package. I was so excited because at that age, I thought it was something I really wanted.

I could hardly wait until the next morning, when my siblings and I opened the gifts, you left us. But when Mom handed the oversized package to my older brother, I had to choke back the tears. But, you knew, Santa, what I really wanted in my heart. As I unwrapped my gift, I saw everything needed to start a toy train village.

None of my childhood Christmas memories are complete without our journey. Visiting the Boys Club and watching the reenactment of the birth of Christ, driving around on Christmas Eve to see all the lights, stopping at the local flower shop to walk along the decorated windows, and finally waking up to homemade Chocolate Drops and pecan fudge.

I dwelt on this memory for a long time until my heart was full, Santa.

So, this year I have only one thing on my Christmas list. Please Santa, after you deliver the toys for the good little girls and boys, please scatter some "Christmas memory dust" down the chimney so the adults in this world will pause and think back to their own Christmas memories.

And maybe, if they can once again look at this season through their "external light" of childhood they will rediscover what both you and I have known for a long time:

Christmas is not a material thing. It is the hope of something wonderful and magical.

A true believer.


Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays...


Patrick

Pretty Paper

-Roy Orbison


Oh Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue


Wrap your presents to your darling from you

Pretty pencils to write I love you

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue


Crowded streets, busy feet, hustle by him

Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh

There he sits, all alone on the sidewalk

Hoping that you won't pass him by


Should you stop? Better not, much too busy

You in a hurry, my, how time does fly

In the distance, the ringing of laughter

And in the midst of the laughter, he cries


Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Wrap your presents to your darling from you

Pretty pencils to write I love you

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
