Merry Christmas! Celebrating Love!

Greetings,

As I was perusing through Facebook and reading some of the comments, I heard a recurring echo that many were not feeling Christmas this year. For some it was because of the loss of a loved one and the holidays have taken on some new complexities. Other voiced that they couldn’t put their finger on it, but they just weren’t “feeling it.” Even myself in the past few years have had to push myself through the Christmas holiday season.

At one point in my journey, and to a vast extent now, Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. It is as much about being with family and friends as it is about the birth of Jesus. I believe that embedded in being with family and friends is the birth of Jesus because of love. In recent years, our family dynamic has changed. We have lost family members who have made their transitions. There are those who have elected not to participate for whatever reason. It doesn’t stop Christmas from being memorable.

Christmas was the highlight of my year. I anticipated it as much as I did when I was young child. Even when I lived away, not coming home for Christmas was never an option. I anticipated celebrating every day with family and friends that kicked off on Christmas Eve and culminated on New Year’s Day.

Things change. Sometimes I find myself longing for those days of old. This year, I made a conscious decision to just enjoy the holidays. It is too important in our lives. With so much happening and many still reeling from such a contemptuous presidential campaign and even post-campaign events that ignites uncertainty, I can’t help but believe what is happening in our society is also playing a role in how we feel this holiday season.

There comes a time when the true meaning of Christmas must take paramount over feelings and outside circumstances. I realized years ago, it was beyond feelings, gift giving or decorations. It was rooted in living out the greatest two commandments to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

God loved us so much that He sent His only Son that we would not only have eternal life, but experience an abundant life here on earth. It exemplifies his unconditional love for us. I believe with all my heart, we must move beyond the feelings, woes and even the loses and embrace love.

Love for family. Love for friends. Love for neighbors. Just love for everyone regardless if they are like us or not or espouse to our philosophies or beliefs. We truly need to just love.

With love comes joy, peace, faith, happiness and the sheer ability to look beyond everything else and enjoy the Christmas season. Join me in making love the guiding force that propels you through this joyous season of celebration.

Have a Merry Awesomely Blessed Christmas!

Celebrating Thanksgiving! Celebrating Family!

Greetings,

As I approached this Thanksgiving, I was somewhat melancholy. I found myself missing so many family members and friends who were no longer here. Yes, I longed for Thanksgivings of yesteryear. Reflecting back, I realized that this was my most favorite time of the year, the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Although I lived hundreds of miles away from my family, I always managed to travel back to share in the holiday festivities. Rather than allow myself to be pulled into a place of melancholy, I decided to celebrate their lives by enjoying the holiday season.

Many are experiencing the loss of loved ones as they celebrate the first Thanksgiving without them. Others just missed their loved ones, like me, even though they may have made their transitions in previous years. Nevertheless, it causes you to reflect on how much you miss them, love them and cherish their memory.

As you celebrate Thanksgiving and the rest of the Christmas season, garner joy in knowing how much their lives touched yours and brought meaning to you and how much you touched theirs. Don’t be afraid to remember all the great times shared. I am not minimizing the intensity of the loss, I know it quite well having lost mother, father, four sisters, a niece, two nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins, two pastors and friends. I am no stranger to it.

I realize celebrating their life, contributions and legacies is more beneficial for my well-being. Remembering them is all of part of moving forward. They are as much a part of me as they were before they exited this life. Love and memories live in the heart and can never be destroyed. If you want to cry and shed some tears, that’s all right. Go ahead and do it. But also, laugh about the good times as well. Cherish and delight in the memories. Don’t allow the melancholy of the loss to consume you and push out the great memories you shared. Make a concerted effort to celebrate their life with joyful appreciation of how it brought meaning to yours.

If you have never lost anyone, reach out to someone who has. Spend time with them in celebrating their loved one. Don’t become impatient when they talk about them too much. They just need a compassionate listening ear. You’re there to help them through a difficult process. What an awesome gift to give—the gift of you.

Whatever holiday traditions you had, believe me your loved ones want you to continue with them. They enjoyed them while they were here with you and they want you to continue to enjoy them. Not to mention, for you to pass on to subsequent generations the importance of family and upholding family traditions.

That’s my commitment. Not to focus on what is a perceived loss, but that I am and have been so blessed with family, both then and now. In our hearts, each one is always with me. Won’t you join me in celebrating Thanksgiving for every blessing of family God gave each of us!

Have a Happy Blessed Thanksgiving!
