Did I light a fifth candle? Did I unite and remember with gratitude the birth of Christ? Yes indeed! My prayer today is for all of us that if we have had, or are still having our Christmas Day that we will take from the possibilities of this Day something lasting to take us to the future.
A Meditative thought for you to ponder
In the 17th Century a French monk found a sea shell. He had a Vision to honour His Lord by making something enduring and lasting to be a blessing and a testimony to his faith. He began to comb the beaches on the Island of Guernsey and even all the broken pieces of smashed shells became his masterpiece.
This is the underground chapel. There are many other small above ground areas and the whole is stunning.
When he died others were so inspired by his Vision that they, through the years, helped complete what he had begun.
Tenacity, Vision and Hope this is what I would like to give you this Christmas. Let HOPE of this remembered Christmas inspire all of us to dream again and have VISION. What seed or shell or spot of paint or written word could you begin with? What lasting legacy can you leave for others to inspire and encourage them forward?
Have a brilliant day! Make of it – even if there are tears something beautiful.
