Christmas 2013: Seek after the Good, the Truth and the Beautiful: The celebration of the birth of Christ.

by Brunhilde Luken

Christmas is almost here, are we ready? I am not talking about the shopping, baking and card writing. These are all things that are somewhat important. They are not that important.

Christmas 2013

We are getting ready for the Birth of Christ: the Birth of Christ within us. This wonder, this light in our midst coming into a darkened world, is often hard to comprehend.

  • Are we ready to embrace all that the Love the Lord offers us with His Son?
  • Are we ready to accept His invitation to this cosmic dance?
  • Are we ready to love one another as He loves us, sending His Son into a world that is not ready?
  • Are we ready to be His Hands, and Heart and His Feet?
  • Are we ready to follow the light He is, the Light of a world full of tribulations.
  • Are we ready to share His Love in this often darkened world?

Our Lord informed us, “I am with you always.” Are we prepared to have a constant conversation with the Lord? When He comes into your life you are filled with this incredible joy, one that nothing can take from you. There is nothing that can take its place.

Live in His light and let that light shine in front of you to direct you in the way He wants you to go. With His light shining through us we are part of the divine life. We are taking part in this cosmic dance.

With the Birth of Christ all the Earth shall sing and worship Him.

Before Christ died for all of us, He promised us the Holy Spirit.  This is the Holy Spirit that we need to bring into the world to take away this darkness that puts shadows in so many lives. Yes, we have to be that light for the world.

It is the same light that will help us to be ready for the birth of Christ within each one of us. What a glorious day it will be when each of us fully realizes that yes, Christ was born for me. What a gift, the gift of the Holy Spirit.

All of this we celebrate each day and especially on Christmas when we remember the birth of Christ.

This is Christmas
by Brunhilde Luken

I walked through this beautiful town.
The sun was shining brightly. It was so peaceful.
The leaves were glistening from the morning dew.
I made a comment, how beautiful,
To my guardian angel who was guiding me through town.

 He looked at me and said: “You have to see this on Christmas”
Immediately everywhere the lights started flickering.
The whole town was lit up.
A tremendous peace came over me.
I looked at him and said:” Oh yes, this is Christmas.”

Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

To all of you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year from our house to your house with love, Brunhilde Luken

  2. Dear Brunhilde and Lubo, The snow falls gently outside my window. The music plays: “O Holy Night” and your poem sets the peaceful scene and becomes my meditation today. Such a generous gift from a gracious friend! Thanks you and know you are thought of with fondness in the Heart of Jesus Crucified, Annette & Lee
