People tend to think of happiness as a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
My sister Jean shared several examples of the true meaning of Christmas, including this one. I thought of how wrong this might have gone under circumstances where someone mistakenly believed this kind gentleman (who missed his train to help an elderly lady) was up to no good. I pray that we (while being cautious), will give others the benefit of the doubt.
STOP! – Don’t take down the Christmas Tree yet; you haven’t opened all your GIFTS!
According to DeLores Pressley . . . “Personal power is a gift that often goes unopened.”
