Bright and Twinkly Christmas Lights
Last night at the concert, I thought of
Love & Gratitude.
There was a beautiful string of Christmas lights on
the back drop for the Christmas Concert at the Fine
Arts Center. The music was enchanting. I loved
seeing a young gentleman playing the double
bass. The orchestra piece from Tchaikovsky made
me smile. And, then, the bright, twinkly Christmas
lights went out. I was thinking of love & gratitude.
And, then, it happened; the lights went on.
I enjoyed two more numbers sung by the Varsity
Choir and, then, the lights went out.
Now, you think that I’d have better things to do
than write about bright and twinkly Christmas
lights. And, you might be hoping that I’d get to the
point. My point is: If the bright and twinkling
Christmas lights represented joy, what if we all
had the ability to turn on the bright and twinkling
Christmas lights just by ‘a wish’ or ‘a
prayer’. What if ‘your attitude really did affect the
mood in a room’? What if ‘your very own bright
and twinkling Christmas lights’ had
the ability to bring joy or sorrow to some one’s
life? What if it was ‘simply a smile’ that lit up the
room? What if sharing love and gratitude really
did have the potential to change the mood in an
entire concert hall?
What if I could make a difference by sharing love
Some one shared the concept with me eight years
ago. I think that they have been on the verge of
tears many times as I walked away from the
opportunity to live ‘happy’ just by ignoring his/her
words of wisdom.
What if your bright and twinkling Christmas lights
could change the world?
Would you be willing to share love & gratitude?
