Holiday greeting
"I always pray for world peace", a line from Groundhog Day. How many days or years does it take to learn the important things in life? We don't get to re-live the same day over and over like Bill Murray's character, but we do get a lifetime to learn.
The key to learning our life's lesson is to slow down from time to time and look around us. Is there someone with a need? We don't have to save the world, but think what we would do if we only helped those we come in contact with. It can be hard to do at first. We have to take our eyes off OUR goals and OURSELVES for a short time. Once we learn how to do this we will find out that the old saying; "What goes around, comes around" is true. You may not see an immediate benefit to helping someone, of course they will, but you are planting seeds that will grow in time.
It may seem odd or even out of character for you to do this. Now is the perfect time. Everyone expects to see people helping people at this time of year. You will blend right in. If you are already comfortable helping others, this may seem too basic. This is not for you, but for those that don't know how to help. The Scrooge character, (another Bill Murray role), is a perfect example. There still are Scrooges out there and they usually have the resources to help, but not the will. If you know a Scrooge, pray for that person and be patient.
I only have a couple things to say to our faithful helpers out there. Continue helping, but be sure to recharge from time to time, or you will become less effective. We are all grateful for your hard work and know that if you don't see a reward down here, you will in Heaven. This is a simple call, help others. It doesn't say how much, but assumes you have the will and the means.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year
