A Christmas Miracle

December is finally here, I think it is safe to say December is one of the most awaited months of the year. The Christmas spirit is at its highest and we all look forward to much needed family time as we take on Christmas break. Therefore, get ready to indulge yourself in hot chocolate dates and to put up your Christmas tree to the rhythm of Jingle Bell Rock. Wherever this holiday season may take you, I invite you to reflect on the true meaning behind Christmas. 

Christmas is usually a noisy party: we could use a bit of silence, to hear the voice of Love. This year a little bit of silence and reflection time would be of good use to us because it is during this time that we are able to hear the voice of love. 

Christmas is you. When you decide to be born again each and every day. The fallen pines around the tree are you when you are strong enough to overcome the difficulties that life throws at you. The Christmas ornaments are you when your virtues are the colors that light up your life. You are also the light of Christmas when you decide to shine your light on others path to help guide them towards the path of love and faith. The angels of Christmas are you when you decide to sing messages of peace, justice, and love. 

You are also the wise men when you give the best you have no matter what. Christmas music is you when you conquer the harmony within you. The Christmas gift is you when you are a true friend and brother of every human being. The Christmas card is you when kindness is written in your hands. The Christmas greeting is you, when you forgive and reestablish peace, even when you suffer. The Christmas dinner is you when you help the poor man who is by your side. You are, yes, Christmas night, when humble and conscious, you receive in the silence of the night the Savior of the world without noise or great celebrations; you are a smile of trust and tenderness. 

The Christmas Miracle, as the title of this article says, is YOU. Be your own miracle this Christmas and understand that you have enough power to change whatever circumstance you may be facing in life. Whatever hardship you may be facing don’t let it keep you from having an amazing holiday season. Be grateful for the little things in your life for they are the most special. 

May this Holiday season bring you lots of love and joy and may you realize that YOU are the Christmas miracle.
