May the greetings of Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Blessed Solstice be a salutation not spoken lightly in passing to others as much as it is a greeting first to you, then to Heaven, then to both of you together in the ultimate form of Joy! Gregge Tiffen (Winter Solstice: The Christmas Story)
Words are few this Christmas Eve morning as the dawn breaks to a fresh blanket of snow here in the woods. My heart is full from sitting in the silence of Solstice, hiking with Luke, time with friends, and time for just me.
I feel deeply blessed to be alive at this time and curiously concerned about how I and we will be with the future as it unfolds. But that is for the new year just around the corner, not for this day.
Today, I simply wish you this ...
May the peace and balance of this Solstice time be with you through all the days to come.
May you know the harmony of this time when all of heaven and all of earth coordinate.
May your life be filled with joy.
And, May you know the blessings of this holy season throughout the coming year!
