Merry Christmas. Bring on the Light

I watched a movie the other day called The Christmas Cottage.  In the movie the words “even in the darkest night, a small light has something to share.”  These words resonated with me over and over again.   My take on that strong sentence was that everyone no matter how big or small has something to share or give.

A smile, a pat of the back, a nod or a hello to a stranger can mean so much.  You may not know this person really has a need to be acknowledged and actually seen.  Perhaps the person feels unloved or invisible.  Kind gestures  can make a difference in someone’s day or life. Lending a helping hand to someone who is unable, preparing a meal for someone who is hungry, taking an interest in an elderly person who has no one to share with, are just a few examples of things we can do to bring on the light stronger.

We are so caught up in the buying, that we forget that Christmas is not just a holy holiday, but should be a lifestyle.  Its message is giving, sharing with others, with no return required.  It is a feeling of gratitude for what we have, and a chance to share that gratitude with someone who may not be so fortunate.

The world can be just a little more kinder, a little more gentle, if only we remember that WE are the light in the darkness, and it doesn’t take much to brighten the world no matter how small or big our world is.  We are all one in this universe.  We are all connected by spirit and energy.  If we all channel this ideal, what light the world would have!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I would like you to share in the comment section how you share your light throughout the year.

  1. I make nut bread, etc., and lots of cookies and Christmas candy; pack it all in tins and boxes and deliver it to the elderly of our church and neighborhood every year for the holidays
    This was a really nice post, thank you for reminding us what is really important this week.

  2. I usually write handwritten cards to all the important people in my life, telling them in a straightforward manner how much them mean to me and how much I appreciate them. I didn’t this year because I got caught up in a move to South Korea.

    Beautiful post Cindi. Thanks for sharing this, and bringing a little light into my blogging life, which sometimes does feel lonely.

  3. I got my family to agree to contribute to charity instead of buying gifts for each other. But more important and actively, I TRY to consider how my words and actions affect others, even and perhaps especially to strangers. Thank you for this true and inspiring post, Cindy.

    Have a wonderful Christmas and health and happiness for you and yours in the New Year!

    • That’s wonderful what you do. It is so rewarding to give where it’s most needed. Sometimes it’s easy to forget when we are going through our own struggles. Thank you for reading. May you and your family have a joyous holiday season.
