Celebrating the 12 days of Christmas with short reflections on 12 gifts
Whether we are Christian or not, this 1st day of Christmas is an ideal day to rejoice in the gift of faith: faith in a god, in a belief system, in humanity, in science, in art, in logic, in love. In another person. In yourself. In the potential of that ultimate in new beginnings: a baby.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Whatever we have faith in, may it allow us to feel that thrill of hope from time to time. To rejoice, even when we are weary.
