Quote of the Week - Merry Christmas




[FOR THE SAKE OF OUR BROTHER]

In a stable 
In a manger 
In the cold winter's air 
In the arms of his mother 
A child's lying there 

In a city 
In a village 
Though the years have gone by 
The child still remains 
With the dream still close by 

And each year on this night that child reawakens 
And each year on this night that hope rebegins 
That the dream he has offered might one day be taken 

For the sake of our brother 
For the child who's forgotten 
For the dream that is still lying there 

O' come all ye faithful 
Joyful and triumphant 
O' come ye, o' come ye 
To Bethlehem 
Come and adore him 
Born the king of angels 

O' come let us adore him 
O' come let us adore him 
O' come let us adore him 
Christ the lord 

In a stable 
In a manger 
In the cold winter's air 
In the arms of his mother a child's lying there

Another Day

All the talk has been about the end of the world - the zombie apocalypse - the burning comets - and yet here we are, still.  Another day has broken on the horizon and we are still here to see it.  But I find myself wondering.  What if it really had been the end of the world as we know it?  What if a cataclysmic event tumbled our world into a completely unfamiliar state?  How would you have responded?  How would I have responded?

We take so much of our surroundings for granted.  The beautiful sky - the strong and enduring evergreens - the people that live within our personal realms and we claim to love.  I challenge everyone who reads this, be it today or next year, to look around you.  What do you see?  Who can you touch? Take it all in - cloak yourself in the beauty and love.  And be grateful for what is in our world.  You never know when it will be gone.  Embrace it while you can.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better.  It's not."
