The Daily Tea: Merry Christmas!

"Dearly beloved, today our Saviour is born; let us rejoice. Sadness should have no place on the birthday of life...Life brings us joy with the promise of happiness.
No one is shut out from the joy; all share the same reason for rejoicing."
-Pope St. Leo the Great, Nativity Sermon, 5th Century

***
During the holiday season, it can be easy for adults to be reminded of what they lack. Once the childhood luster wears off, we notice that we don't have as much money as we need, we don't have as much family around as we need, we may be single, and our friends may be far away. The holiday season is a time to rejoice. Whether we are rich in worldly possessions or not, we are rich in love. Someone somewhere loves you. If you feel alone, remember the ultimate gift was given those many years ago. That gift is the reason we celebrate. We all share that gift. We all share that love.
Merry Christmas to all!
George Arnett :-)
