May your Christmas be like a playground in the shade on a hot summer’s day.
In all the challenges and difficulty that 2021 has brought, my prayer is that you experience some joy in this season.
Children are very good at making connections with each other. Sometimes they are successful, other times they aren’t, but it doesn’t stop them from trying.
Sometimes we need to be deliberate or intentional in connecting with others, even when it’s hard, and when there is a chance our being vulnerable may not be well received.
Say hello to that neighbour you have never spoken to.
Or if you are past hello, stop for a chat instead of rushing past.
Consider a random act of kindness.
Seek out a ‘tribe’ of like minded people – sports, crafts, philosophy, spirituality
Push past the initial discomfort and you may be truely blessed by a genuine connection.
May the inner peace and true joy of this season be yours, which can only be given by my wonderful friend Jesus Christ.
He is only too happy to give it to you too.
