The following is a repost of a WoW blog from a Christmas past.



My thoughts had focused upon family, friends, and the warmth that the bonds provide as we moved closer to the holidays. Events, circumstances, fate, choices, and life itself would intercede to change this. The normally carefree joyous season would be marred for myself and many of those I am close to by death, declining health, adversity, tribulation, guilt, estrangement, poor choices, and pain.

It is within these times that the power of Spirit shines forth most brilliantly with comfort and redemption. A solitary star is in the foreboding sky at its pinnacle of brightness when alone in the dark. Three pines, unadorned living Christmas trees as well as symbolizing man, woman, child, family, are isolated, alone, in the forest reaching upward through the cold towards the star as we reach to Spirit for ourselves, our family, and those that we love.

The verse is comprised of three original examples of Haiku, a Japanese art form consisting of seventeen syllables. The form normally is conceptual, abstract, often ethereal and without rhyme. As a group, these have a rhyme scheme to unify the verses. The use of western rhyme and Haiku symbolizes the universality of Spirit. Three were done to symbolize troikas of Biblical symbolism:
• The three wise men
• The Father, The Son, The Holy Ghost
• Faith, Hope, Charity

If you feel that it is worthy of distribution and sharing, please do so. I do hope that in some small way that this symbolizes the Gift that we all have been given.

May you and yours cherish and delight in one another under the blessings and generosity of Spirit. May those of you facing cold realities, be blessed with inner warmth and comfort. May those of us who ask much, offer little and make wrong choices, be forgiven and loved by reciprocating in kind, as Spirit forgives and loves us.

Ynot – I’m still kicking but my toes are starting to get sore. Been busy lately with other things so I have not been on AMD much lately.

Sunshine – glad we could bring a little sunshine in your day because you bring so much in ours.

NoO - Thanks for the green thingiemeboob.

Softy – You think it may be some of your soft touch starting to rub off on WoW.

CL – I agree but I can’t believe that WoW has not commented that this has been posted before.

Skwirl – YW from the 2 of us. (How many nuts you got stored in yer stockins?)
