Gifts we already Hold~ In Gratitude

Gratitude Love and Blessings.

‘Season’s Gifts’

Our Season’s greetings now begun,

And gifts we give and songs we’ve sung

Of Peace on Earth Goodwill to men

Well I had to write and hold my pen

butterfly divider

And tell you of the Gifts we hold

They come not of the Christmas Story told

But each and every day we see

The True gifts heaven sent to you and me

butterfly divider

The ones of shelter from a storm

A roof and food and Healthy baby born

To walk to see and smile happily

And share the love of family

butterfly divider

Let’s remember those who have no one

The orphan’s beggars and lonely ones

Those who are lost and those afraid

And those who are abused and dazed

butterfly divider

Let’s count the Gifts of being warm

And pray for those who come to harm

Lets also remember the war torn spots

Where our soldiers lives are not just maps and dots

butterfly divider

So when we unwrap our gifts this year

Let us remember with a tear

The Gifts we hold each and every day

To Give our thanks and Blessings say

butterfly divider

Peace on Earth Goodwill to all men

And hold them in our hearts ..

Amen..

amwalker~

As we approach Christmas Let us remember this Season reminds us about the

Gifts of Giving

Let us also remember All those Gifts we have carried with us throughout the year while others around the world may have not been so fortunate

I want to add a quote here from a blogging friend Narf!  over at The Road to Serendipity  who commented upon my Previous post Time is Flying

“Life is amazing and we are here to document that awesomeness. Lets all stop paying homage to small things and go hunting for the beauty, the precious essence and the special moments in the everyday”

    Simply superb, what lovely composition of thoughts…it couldn’t have been better…the rhyme and rhythms of; warm and harm, spots and dots, hold and told…what a beautiful choice of words…it resonants and connects so well…

    Gifts of words is what you have been blessed with…Gratitude is the best attitude we all can carry and should carry, well said it is the father of all virtues, no denying the profound thought…

    Seasons gifts and particularly the year end gifts is what we all look forward, it is not the monetary value that is attached to it but the feeling it brings with it as a bundle of joy for us to get happy…happiness is in these small gestures and little surprise gifts that comes our way…

    Let the new year usher with lots of such beautiful gifts for you…lots of good wishes and good health from my side…

    Maybe you had to keep repeating it over and over so the message could sink in 😉
    Or maybe it is just a frustrating cycle. The last few days have been very slow and frustrating for me on multiple levels. Fortunately I eventually return to my Center and realize how lucky IAM! I am just not there yet at this moment 🙂

    I truly hope you know how much your friends love you and how grateful we are to have you in our corner!

    Its very easy to get caught up in the consumer rush for mass spending and designer ” perfection” but wading in and running in this baton race is only going to end in tears. If we withdraw from the race gracefully and we sit back in our happy (tatty) little deckchairs on the sidelines we can really get a much better picture of what is going on. How much true happiness gets trampled over in the Christmas rush and the Boxing day sales…those credit card bills in February might just take years to pay off where simple, thoughtful and personalised gifts, whether they are appreciated or not, are better for the giver, the person receiving AND the planet. There will always be someone better off than you but then again, there will always be someone worse off than you. Where you are, right here, right now is perfect for “you” and we have to make the very most of it in order to live our lives to the fullest and to be truly ready for happiness when it flutters by otherwise how are we going to recognise it, let alone enjoy it to the max?

      You know I so Love you and your thoughts narf.. and agree entirely with your comment.. People are so intoxicated with the need to just BUY.. it often matters not what it is, just that they have to spend.. and ‘Get a Bargain’.. I so so smile… as often the bargain is something they never really needed but because of the Sales Signs,, its now a must have item.. And like you say, to pay back later.. I wrote a poem upon this subject I hope to publish later on, I wrote in the late 90’s when Plastic was still quite new,in our world, only having said that. it had been around since the late 60’s in the UK. But was fast becoming the In thing to purchase on..
      We live in a World made on Credit… I am sorry but its not my world, or yours I would think Narf…
      So making the most.. of every day.. With you all the way xx

      Yes I received several Hugs off of my 4 yr old granddaughter this morning, I was making that dolls house out of card, and she said. Lets us our ‘Imagination’ as I explained on her last visit all about Imagination.. So her cardboard box I cut arched doors in, and she drew windows and before long we had a magical Snow Castle … When I said I would have to get up off the floor as I was aching a bit.. She gave me the biggest of hugs and said Thank you Grandma for playing in my Imagination.. and I got a huge kiss.. 🙂 These are the most precious moments I can ever cherish Jack.. And are FERECT.. Every One 🙂 ❤ _/\_

    Will we all enter Christmas and exit into a new year as we always do or will we finally stand up together this time and refuse to accept anything less than peace for the world and an end to war and hatred? The old scenario must end once and for all and love must conquer all. Let us all complete our mission this year to shift the world into a new paradigm of gratefulness and love and compassion.

      My wish for the future VK would be nothing less than a Wish for ALL to embrace Peace within their lives.. I was listening to a conversation today as I took my Granddaughter to pre-school.. And you know there is still so much work to do upon personal levels and people Hold Anger, Bitterness and dislike for others… Sigh… But we can only keep working upon our selves and within our own corners as we drop our pebbles of thoughts out into the ocean of Consciousness.. Let us hope dear VK we can keep sending the ripples out and create eventually a tidal wave of Love.. So sad people only remember how to Give at this time of year.. Instead we should be giving and in Gratitude each and every day.. ❤ Big Hugs dear Friend xx

    Gratitude for all we take for granted and gratitude for all that surrounds us with Mother nature and her wondrous world.
    The best gifts to share of all.
