One of my favorite Christmas songs is Alex Lifeson’s Little Drummer Boy, not just because it’s a unique rendition, but because I love the idea of a little boy realizing he has a valuable gift to give after all.
I also loved the perspective offered from a friend last week who said she’s not buying presents for family this year, because after all – it isn’t their birthday, it’s Jesus’ birthday.
That sounded very right to me. And here I’d picked out presents for everyone but Jesus.
So on today’s dog walk in the quiet canyon today, I wondered what gift I might offer on Jesus’ birthday.
I felt sort of like I imagine little drummer boy did, inadequate to offer anything valuable.
And then I remembered Michele Woodward’s email to me today, where she told me my superpower was positive influence. (Thank you, Michele.)
I doubt Jesus needs any positive influence, but it did occur to me I could share some highlights from his work, via Abraham:
Happy holidays to everyone here who makes this journey such a delicious adventure.
Thank you for being part of my world, and merry Christmas!
