It’s been so gloomy lately. Bad news everywhere. Evil triumphant.
We’re determined, no matter what, to be happy. Walk on the sunny side of the street. Look for the silver lining on the dark cloud. Keep you chin (or as the departed in 2014 Joan Rivers used to mock, chins) up. These are not just platitudes. These words have meaning and great power.
We know it is not a Christmas carol or Christmas related song but this is a song of cheer even if dourly delivered:
Think things are bad? We do. But we also see great and glorious opportunity. Call it a Christmas miracle or a festival of lights Hanukkah glow or maybe it’s even eggnog effects. But this holiday it is time to light a candle not just curse the darkness.
Think you or we can’t survive another two more years of Obama misery? Hell’s bells lady, we already survived almost six of the miserable years and another two will be a romp.
Think the race baiting will never stop and can’t be endured for another moment? Well, there are people like this tough lady who need to be sent some love and admiration not abandoned because we might have a gloomy outlook on political life lately:
She’s said everything we have written. And, she wears PINK! Right on Sista! Right On!
There are plenty of good people who see the problems for what they are and know the solutions come from the right place in the heart and mind.
We know it’s not a Christmas Carol nor a Christmas related song but we want to say a few words about a word without too much explanation. Genesis, the beginning:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
From the Book of John:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
Say the word and you’ll be free
Say the word and be like me
Say the word I’m thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It’s so fine, it’s sunshine
It’s the word, love
In the beginning I misunderstood
But now I’ve got it, the word is good
Light the lights. Brighten the present. Sing the songs. Brighten the future. It’s going to be alright.
A Happy and Merry Christmas to one and all.
