Daily Inspiration: Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most. ~Ruth Carter Stapleton

 

Today’s Affirmation: The best of me is present in every call for love.  I show up and I deliver.

 

Today's Spiritual Contemplation: It is just as easy to remember who we are as it is to forget .  The only difference is in the habits we choose to nurture.  Christmas really is made every day when we embrace the habit of giving our best.

Daily Inspiration: The fireside is the tulip bed of a winter day. ~Persian Proverb

 

Today’s Affirmation: I remember today to attend to the fire in my heart.

 

Today's Contemplation: Just like a hearth fire or a garden, the passions of the heart must be tended.  To think your passions and desires will remain alive without your attention is to ignore a fundamental law, seek first the beloved, the Christ within; only then can you truly receive all the riches of life.  This is the highest embodiment of the law of reciprocity.

Daily Inspiration: My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others.  Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that? ~Bob Hope

 

 Today’s Affirmation: Today I give the Christmas Spirit; I let someone know they are appreciated.  

Today's Contemplation: Anything that keeps us from living love is an argument with no substance; it is nothing dressed up as something.  As this time of reminders comes up, I ask myself how might I more fully give something and stop pretending my giving of nothing is really something?

Daily Inspiration: Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. ~Swedish proverb

 

Today’s Affirmation: I trust the infinite power and presence that I call life to unfold all things aright.  

Today's Contemplation: Gerhard Staguhn in his book God’s Laughter says “What we perceive as the world is the three-dimensional shadow that four-dimensional space-time casts upon our consciousness”.  In other words worry really does cast a big shadow and that shadow is our real and tangible experiences.

Daily Inspiration: I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens  

 

Today’s Affirmation: I keep a covenant with my vision of fulfillment.  I live a creed of joy and receive all good things.

 

Today's Contemplation: If we must try to live the truth then we lack understanding of the truth.  When we truly have understanding then living Christmas everyday is very natural.  As the great ones have always said; “In all your getting get understanding.”

Daily Inspiration: Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. ~Peg Bracken

 

Today’s Affirmation: I am love, I am giving love.

 

Today's Spiritual Contemplation: If God is Love and God is all there is then the truth of who you are, who each one of us is, must be love.  If you are love and that is all you are then there really is nothing else to give. And if every person is wholly love then it is not about giving but rather about expressing love.
