On Christmas day, just a little reminder to remember the reason for the season. Today’s visual inspiration is a collection of images of Jesus from around the world in various styles. I chose not to use images of the Nativity as it’s worth remembering that this is the beginning of a mysterious story that leads to the cross and beyond.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ―Norman Vincent Peale
If like me you’re an introvert and the non-stop hustle and bustle of gifts, family, gin, games, toys and the rest of the day’s festivities are likely to wear you thin – push through, it’s days like this that are etched in the minds of those we love. Be present.
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. ―Peg Bracken
Lastly, try to find just a minute or so today to reflect on how you’re feeling – take stock of where you are and where you want to go in the next year…
Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling. ―Edna Ferber
