The Real Gifts 

Christmas is for giving your Light and your Love.
These are the Real and Lasting Gifts we bring.
Wise men know that temporal gifts may not be utilized or appreciated.
Most of us have forgotten what really matters.

We are here to feed, clothe and provide shelter the hungry and homeless.
We are here to care for the ill and dying and provide comfort and healing.
We are here to create laughter and learning for the ignorant and suffering.
We are here to inspire and encourage those who are searching and forgotten.
We are here to give to those who need to be reminded they matter.
We are here to enjoy the fulfillment of giving.
We are here to remember we are all one family.
We are here to truly love one another.

We are together here on this Earth to awaken the Light within.
So let’s begin with the One we are.

Except for little presents for the grandkids, which are given throughout the year, for 20 years I give no special Christmas gifts. Everyday is Christmas. Everyday is an opportunity to share my gratitude, joy and love with those I meet.
This is a time to really enjoy the company of others.

Christmas is a sacred time of remembering really why we are here with one another.
