MK 13:23 “Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create NOTHING unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed.”
Today, on Christmas day, let us consciously, systematically, and constructively create the very best for ourselves and those we love, by loving and giving with definite purpose – to bless others and to give them hope.
The Kneeling Santa is one of my favorite images, and the quote below is from my favorite Christmas movie – “The Bishop’s Wife” 1947
“Tonight I want to tell you the story of an empty stocking. Once upon a midnight clear, there was a child’s cry. A blazing star hung over a stable and wise men came with birthday gifts. We haven’t forgotten that night down the centuries; we celebrate it with stars on Christmas trees, the sound of bells and with gifts. But especially with gifts. You give me a book; I give you a tie. Aunt Martha has always wanted an orange squeezer, and Uncle Henry could do with a new pipe. We forget nobody, adult or child. All the stockings are filled — all that is, except one. And we have even forgotten to hang it up. The stocking for the child born in a manger. It’s his birthday we are celebrating. Don’t ever let us forget that. Let us ask ourselves what he would wish for most, and then let each put in his share. Loving kindness, warm hearts and the stretched out hand of tolerance. All the shining gifts that make peace on earth.”
Be Blessed, my MKMMA friends.
