Happy 2019

In sparklers, Happy New Year! 2019 is emblazoned against a black, firework illuminated background. On the number 2019, the lettering appears to spark as though it has been written in actual flame.

My Treasures,

I wanted to wish each and every one of you a blessed new year!

These wishes are so common, and I know many truly mean well by them. Many, however, say “happy new year” like it’s a kneejerk reaction. What does it actually mean when we say it though?

I’ll tell you what it means to me.

To me, “happy new year” means…

I did not write most of these quotes, but they ring true just the same.

I want to wish you all joy, but I know it’s impossible for every moment to bring it. Instead, I wish you courage. I wish you strength. I wish you the ability to confront the challenges this year holds with dignity, grace and a positive outlook. You are so much stronger than you know. If you are a follower of Jesus, you have even more grace to carry you through. If you are not a believer, then believe in yourself and in the choices you make, the people who love you and the strength within each and every one of you.

In the words of Leanne Womack, I Hope You Dance.

Bless all of you, my Treasures. I love you.

A New Year Challenge

A lit christmas tree stands against a black background, illuminating it with a gentle radiance.

From Netflix’s ‘The Christmas Chronicles

Santa: “People need Christmas to remind them of how good they can be.”

I often find it very saddening how we often see the best of ourselves through Christmas, and then feel as though we must make up for it by being not quite our best come January first. To so many, Christmas is like a switch or a hat. You flip it on and you flip it off, you take it on and you take it off.

I charge each and every one of you this year, myself included, to remember the warmth it brought you to do something kind for another person this season. Even if it was a tiny thing that made them smile. Even if it had absolutely no monetary value. Even if it went a little beyond your comfort zone. Don’t be one of the Christmas season light switches. Don’t pull out the best of yourself for Christmas and then pack it away with your tree and ornaments to gather dust for another year.

We are humans. We won’t be perfect all the time. We can’t be. We’ll slip up, and I’m guilty of this just as much as anyone else. The way I see it though, if Christmas is needed in order to remind us of how good we can be, then isn’t it worth actually remembering that throughout the year?

In my lifetime, I’ve found the Christmas season both warming and saddening, because in most instances, I know the beauty of people is likely to be shelved with the artificial trees or tossed out with the real ones. And when that happens, it makes the goodness of the holiday season feel like a festively illuminated lie.

Let’s show the world that there is truth to that goodness after all.

Happy upcoming new year, my beautiful Treasures.
