Maybe Christmas means a little bit more

Maybe Christmas means a little bit more

Belief in something bigger than yourself, is the key to survival in any tragic event and in your weight loss program.


Our region recently experienced a violent windstorm. Nothing compared to the devastation of a Hurricane or Tornado or Earthquakes and huge oil and toxic waste spills, that other more unfortunate countries and states have experienced before us.

But the devastation exists.

13 homes on my street had huge trees crash onto their roofs, that are now in their kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.

Also entangled in the mess were the downed power lines, making for  a very dangerous setting for homeowners, and power restoring workers, who worked around the clock until the 50,000 homes were back with power. Many of us did not leave, we toughed it out. As it turned out the storm was followed by a cold snap and creative measures were taken to keep our homes warm and safe.

There were looters. People who took advantage of those who were without lights, but we stood our ground and protected our homes.  

13 homes have blue tarps on their roofs as I walk by them, now covered with a beautiful blanket of snow and decorated with Christmas lights. It reminds me of the story of the Grinch who stole Christmas.

Welcome Christmas, bring your light
Welcome in the cold of night

Welcome Christmas, while we stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand

We all took the necessary steps after the storm made the necessary call, fixed what we could fix on our own, and now we wait until it is our turn for the contractors to come to fix the wholes in our roofs and cut the trees out of our bathrooms. Just as Thanksgiving came, families gathered, turkeys were baked, now Christmas is upon us. 

God has blessed us with a White Christmas to give us a feeling of hope and purity.

We strung the lights that shine in the night through the snow to make it an even more spectacular sight. It will melt and we will still have the holes to deal with but we have survived.

Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

How do we prepare for the next one?

Some are saying cut down the trees around your home. I say those trees that remain standing have stood the test, have proved themselves to be strong and mighty. I noticed that the trees in the forest were hardly touched as they held each other up. They stood solid together.

This Christmas stand tall and strong by your family and friends . 

Christmas Day will always be
Just as long as we have we.

Welcome Christmas while we stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand.

Belief in something bigger than yourself, is the key to survival in any tragic event and in your weight loss program.

It can’t just be you against the world, (like the grinch) it is faith, it is hope and it is love. Love of yourself and others around you.

In order to nurture the world we must nurture ourselves or we will end up like the Grinch only thinking of himself and developing a small cold heart.
