The first day of winter was yesterday and we were bundled up tight…by the air conditioner! Our air temperature topped off at almost 80 degrees here yesterday, as we stowed our jackets and gloves for shorts and flip flops again.
It felt like maybe we were heading for Christmas on Christmas Island!
Yes, all the dangling neon ice cycles, hanging from roof tops and rain gutters couldn’t make our first day of winter any cooler. And I thought are we about ready to exchange a Christmas of fires in fire places for the lucid hum of the air conditioner again?
No hot chocolate. No steam coming from mouths as we hop in the car. No cold car rides through brightly lit Christmas light shows…..instead having to op for the windows rolled down?
I mean….this is the only time of the year I get a chance to wear my snazzy green blazer for cryin’ out loud!
But my glass half empty Grinch was soon to be readjusted as a favorite Christmas carol came on…
Do you see what I see?
Tis the time for preparing our hearts for the greatest gift of all. It not about fires or warm temperatures, Christmas parties and presents, green blazers, or decorations. Its about…“A child, a child will be sleeping somewhere in the night. He will bring us goodness and light.”
So this is 3D wishing each and every reader out there a way to prepare your hearts for a ‘warm’, memorable and peaceful Christmas and Christmas week!
Merry Christmas everyone!
