Inspiration

December

So much happens in December!  It can be such a busy month that it's more stressing than blessing.  I hope we can all take time for quiet, for thought, for feeling Spirit.  People around the world observe Christmas, Hanukkah, Bodhi Day (Day of Enlightenment), Yule -- all occasions to celebrate light -- for the light returns in December, reminding us that it really won't be long before there is renewal.  As Oliver Herford says, “I heard a bird sing in the dark of December, a magical thing, and sweet to remember. We are nearer to Spring than we were in September...
