The stars are shining brightly outside tonight, and when we look at them it’s hard to realize that we are looking at the past in every single case. Sometimes we are looking at long past.
It’s easy to look into the past, and impossible to see the future. The best thing we can really do is to live in the day, love in the day, be kind in the day, and share good things with those around us. Our family, our friends and as many of those we come in contact with every day. We celebrate love during this time period of the year.
But, I hear the word hate too much every day now. I see it written down every day. Even in this season…that word rises up to bring us down. It rises up to defeat us! If we let it, that one…word…will…destroy us.
Think about it on the eve of this most holy day for Christianity. During this season for different people who celebrate other types of holy days. Think about it in the new year. I don’t want hate to destroy us, and pervert our feelings for each other.
Remember Dr. Martin Luther King’s words: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only the light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that”.
