Turn Up the Joy
By Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla
If there is a light of love, of joy, of peace that burns within us all year long, Christmas is the time when it shines more brightly. Peace and love and joy just seem to be in the air! What a delight to see so many humans -- walking, talking, smiling lights -- shining at Christmastime, going about their everyday lives, but with their lights shining just a bit brighter than normal.
Ah... but then the company leaves, the tinseled tree is taken down, the presents are put away. And it sometimes seems too easy to make the decision -- possibly on some subconcious level -- that Christmas is over, so the light has to go back to smoldering deep within us, rather than shining brightly for all to see.
But if so, that was last year. It's this year now, and we can do things differently. This Christmas let your light shine -- not only during the holiday season, but all year. Should you find your wattage dimming, a call, letter or email to Silent Unity can help you get back on track.
Give, and it will be given to you ... for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.
--- Luke 6:38
