Therefore, we lucky people should spend a few minutes praying that they are warm and safe.
And if you are one of the lonely, just know that someone’s prayers are with you this Christmas, at least from one that I know.
Let’s come together this season of love to warm each other’s heart. If you are grieving, share it with Vuon Chuoi, so that we all can pray and share it with you. You can share it by commenting on Vuon Chuoi, or write a post, and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s reach out and grasp each other’s hands, so that the winter won’t be so cold, and we can warm each other’s hearts. All kinds of winter holidays – Celts, Calan Gaeaf (Wales), Yule (German), Sadeh (Persian), Dies Natalis Solis Invicti (Roman), Kodela (Slavic), Hanukkah (Jewish) or Christmas (Christian) – have one purpose: to bring warmth to each other, to celebrate the end of the winter and the sun is coming back.
Holiday season is the season for us to come closer to each other, to understand each other better, to lift each other up and give each other a hand.
We may spend a lot of time decorating our home with Christmas trees, caverns, colorful lights and sparkling presents. Perhaps we should also decorate our hearts with those beautiful sparkling colors, and a fireplace, so that we can invite our friends to come sharing with us beside it.
Season of love is the season for us to show our love to everybody, to make the singing of angels come true – Glory to God on high and peace to all good people on earth.
God could not be glory in heaven if the good people do not have peace on earth. And there’s no peace on earth if the good people do not create it.
Let’s bring peace to each other, for all of us.
Wish you all a warm and peaceful Christmas.
