My Christmas Wish

Christmas 2012 is only 3 days away! As we struggle to get into the spirit of the season we are reminded of what we experienced as a nation, a humbling of our spirit, this past week. We realize how quickly life can change and how imbalanced our world has become. It is up to each of us to do something to help us regain the balance we once knew.

To the parents who have lost their children, and the families who have lost their loved ones, my heart and prayers go out to you. I understand, I have been there too. I realize that there are no packages or bows that can heal your heart. Please know that the nation, the world is in mourning for those special human beings that gave up their lives to show us a better way. Each one is not only a national but world hero. The light of their lives will serve as a beacon of hope for all of us. They will be remembered. We are reminded of the proclamation, ‘a child will lead them…’

On my Christmas wish list I wish for a world that refuses to use or accept fear as a way of profiting or even existing. I asked for no more lives to be torn apart and for time to help heal all of our wounded hearts. I wish for a world that is full of peace and harmony. A world that causes us to remember that we are all our brothers (and sisters) keepers. A world that is just, giving and loving. A world that believes in truth and always strives to see the best in others.

As we remember the life changing events that happened last week, there is one Christmas carol that is especially meaningful to me. Let There Be Peace on Earth. The lyrics are especially fitting.

Let there be peace on earth and
Let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

May you have a wonderful Christmas.
