A HEARTY THOUGHT ON CHRISTMAS - WISH YOU ALL A MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!


Let me start with a message from Pope Paul VII in respect of the festival,
He had once said, "We consider Christmas as the encounter, the great encounter, the historical encounter, the decisive encounter, between God and mankind. He who has faith knows this truly; let him rejoice."

Whenever Christmas comes, a small incident always gets refreshed in my mental screen. It was a Christmas Eve few years back. Every Christmas…let me tell you I always love to visit a Church and light a candle. That day also we were out to visit a Church with our two year old little son. On our return, we decided to have dinner outside and went to a Chinese corner. As we were supposed to enter it, a tantrum caught my ear. I turned back and saw a lady with her two children was there at some distance. Her son (around 5, 6 years) was throwing tantrums while she and her daughter (around 9, 10 years) were trying to pacify him. I thought something might have happened with the child. Curiosity got better of me that made me walk towards them. But before I reach there, they had left in their car. I turned to the watch man who was the witness there, and asked him, what the matter was.

He said, the lady along with her two children  had come to order food from the restaurant and carry them to home. While passing gate,outside, she saw a lady with two children was asking for something. The woman gave that parcel of food to them. That made her son upset and unhappy. That's why he was throwing tantrums. However the woman promised her son that she would visit another restaurant and take food for them too…once again!The child finally stopped crying

I don’t support begging but sometime these things happen.That lady was unknown to me but I could feel what she might have felt that moment. A bit of kindness...sometime you know you feel like making their day (who are needy) nice. Isn't it??

No matter what is going on in our world, there is always a part of us remain good, unaffected by any negativity at any point of time. We are born good, kind, peace loving and happy. Let’s keep it that way…always!!
Let’s have faith on Humanity and Lets Believe in Love!!!

According to Carrie Fisher, Christmas is not necessarily about things, but "it’s about being good to one another, it's about the Christian ethic, it's about kindness". …I agree!!!

Christmas is not a time, not a season but a state of mind
To cherish peace and goodwill
To be plenteous in mercy
It’s the real spirit of Christmas!!

Jingle Bell Jingle Bell Jingle All the Way
Let good things rhyme on your way
Let peace resonates in your soul
And prosperity dance and sing
To keep negativity and pessimism away!!

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas!!!
