The words to this song struck me this morning as I listened to Christmas music while baking in my kitchen. I hope you find the beautiful message in this simple song and that your home is filled with peace, love and joy this Christmas.
“Christmas present is here today bringing joy that may last.”
While you unwrap gifts and gather around the table with your family, remain present amidst the chaos and recognize the joy that surrounds you.
“May your hearts be light.”
May the joy that you find lift your hearts and allow you to acknowledge that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
“In a year our troubles will be miles away.”
It is amazing what a year can bring. Be hopeful that next year the troubles that seem so heavy right now will have drifted away.
“Precious friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more.”
Friends are the family that we chose, count them as some of your greatest blessings.
“In a year we all will be together, if the fates allow.”
Everything happens for a reason and in perfect time. Have faith that the year ahead will bring exactly what is meant for you.
"So have yourself a merry little Christmas now!"
