Merry’s Musings

Welcome to all the new friends we met at the Natural Living Expo. We are glad to have you as part of our family. We wish all of you a restful, restorative, and joyous holiday season.

What exactly do we celebrate during this holiday season? Well, if you ask 100 people, you’ll get 100 answers. For some, this is a very deep spiritual time–both a time of giving thanks to God for so many blessings, and a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus. For others, it is a time to celebrate the laughter and love of family and friends, the sharing of gifts and feasts, and seeing familiar faces gathered at the table from the corners of the globe. For others, it is a time to acknowledge our mother Earth and her cycles and seasons. And on and on the list goes.

But what I sense the most during these days is the notion that we should slow down, step out of our routine busyness and live in the moment; we should drink in the cold starry nights, smell the rich flavors of life, and just stop striving for a few moments. We feel the stirrings of hope, of unity with our global family, of how delicious life would be if we could always live in unity and harmony.

And we can. It is our intended birthright. And it starts with me! And with you! When I am at peace within myself, I can be at peace with you. And so the circle widens until there is truly PEACE ON EARTH!

Happy Holidays everyone.
