This Christmas season is to be brought in as a calm energy. All the rush is not a part of my nature anymore.
The season of Christmas is joy,peace and happiness. It is also a time to prepare us for what is ahead in the new year.
Christmas is a time for family and appreciating those in our lives. Christmas is a time for us to remember Yeshua came into our world 2000 years ago and he will return as promised.
This Christmas I want to see peace,happiness and a true joy in million of lives. We are truly blessed to be alive in a time of such changes and transformation in our world.
The Holy Spirit is awakening millions every day to something more in this world and reminding us life is a Spiritual journey. In the end there is so much more to life than what meets the eye.
This Christmas I am hoping for clearer vision and more awakening in this world.
I am hoping for truth to prevail and scripture to continue unfolding in our lifetime. I am praying for Spiritual Intervention to take place in this world and the worldly powers weaken as more wake up and rise up for truth.
This is a wonderful season of cheer. A time to be hopeful of Spiritual Awakening and a New World unfolding before us.
This Christmas season spread joy, peace and calm to those around. As we celebrate the end of another year, another decade and the Birth of Yeshua.
We have reached another year of celebration. The cheer, joy,food,drinks,music, laughter and gift giving is tradition and excitement for many. With many also take this time to reflect on the birth of a little baby boy many centuries ago.
Whatever the reason is to you, we have reached Christmas 2018 and bringing in newness into our lives. The Christmas cheer from parang music , many heading to the beaches , to church, a neighbor, family member or just taking in the moment to just relax is a delightful feeling by many. Lots are still rushing with last minute painting, changing curtains or looking to cook up a large meal for family members and friends. Ham, Turkey, Pastelles, Puncha Creme and Black Cake sharing and many enjoying a good lime is a traditional moment that never gets old. Everything is a lime in Trini style but with Christmas limes everyone wants to participate as you are guaranteed a glass of ginger beer, sorrel or Puncha Creme.
This is the time everyone comes around, you get that call from everyone to wish you a Happy Christmas. Everyone wants a taste of Grandma Black Cake because you know she has that extra special touch that makes everyone wants more and more and trust me that cake wont last more than one day.
Christmas is here and each year brings around a joy that brings everyone around. This is a taste of my Christmas, hope everyone is enjoying the cheer.
The little joys found in decorating for the season of Christmas. This ranges from a snow man, to a nativity scene, artificial flowers or real flowers grown in a garden. Each decoration is unique, special and has a taste of a little Christmas Cheer for everyone.
Once upon a time on a Christmas eve night a child was in a orphanage who never celebrated a Christmas with any family or friends. He was bullied in school and had no one to call family. Each year he will look outside and see children playing with their new toys and enjoying the precious moments with their closest family and friends.
At that moment he would ask himself would I ever be able to experience a true Christmas the way I see others. He felt lonely, depressed and completely hopeless as each year passed it was the same story. One Christmas eve night he made a wish on a star , his wish was to be happy and loved. He wanted a family, a friend, a mentor basically anyone as he never knew what love is from the start.
In school everyone would share there experience or bring gifts for one another and he would crave to know what this feeling is like. He never knew what a hug feels like, a warm smile, receiving anything from anyone or knowing about a Christmas cheer. He only knew what everyone else told him and what he saw outside that window. No one ever opened a door to him for this season as he was looked at as just a orphan.
So, each year on Christmas Eve night he made one wish. Hoping one day his wish could be granted.
Traffic, last minute shopping with all the rush and little to no parking spots left you would swear its weekend rush. I am not running late with gifts this year but unluckily for me I had one more gift to buy and was caught in all the hassle today.
All the lights, music, food and decorations everyone loves this season it either has a meaning to some or it traditions brings happiness in lives. Christmas movies, children looking forward to seeing Santa in malls and making a wish list for Christmas morning is something that’s a beauty to see. Schools are closed for children in my little island of Trinidad and so many take this opportunity to take time with their little ones, some even get them involved in all the preparation. It was like this when I was young, I found myself helping with all the decorations, cleaning, painting, volunteering and heading Christmas events. All these moments became traditions that has passed along from generation to generation.
Now as a adult I still heavily participate in all the Christmas activities and appreciate this season more than anything. I also have to take a moment and be appreciative as so many do not have that privilege or cannot celebrate this season the same way . Many have lost a loved one, some are without jobs or unable to celebrate with a family member or partner because of distance. This can take a toll and can easily set a tone for a season.
My only wish for Christmas is that everyone finds happiness in everything and keep each moment special this season. Make traditions if you don’t have, smile at a stranger, play Christmas music even if its for 10 minutes, give a meal to the homeless or just relax. Whatever is planned I hope everyone find a little peace, joy and happiness. In the beauty of this season.
