December Gifts for the Heart: Beauty

There is so much beauty around in December with all the Christmas decorations, lights, and of nature itself! The snow-covered world brings such peace and serenity. I wrote about that in my last post.

I used to think that putting up all those Christmas lights was such a waste of money that really could be put to better use.  Over the years I have come to realize what beauty they bring to the world and that we all need that beauty.  And now, with the new LED lights, it only costs a little.

I do so enjoy driving around looking at all the Christmas lights.  The decorations and lights add so much to that feeling of wonder and awe that the season is all about.  It brings such beauty to my heart and soul.  I feel it deep within, and the happiness and joy bubble up inside, just from seeing them!

I know that December, and especially Christmas, can be a hard time for a lot of people.  Those who have lost loved ones.  Those who have no family to get together with.  Those who have no friends to connect with since they are all with their own families. And the list goes on.  If you are one of these people, I hope that you can see past the hurt and pain enough to soak in the beauty of the season.  Enjoy the lights and decorations that are all around for the beauty they bring to the world.  Let that energy of love and peace fill your heart and soul for at least a brief time.   Feel the wonder and awe if only for a brief moment.

Beauty is a gift given to us freely and without hesitation.  Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.  I hope you are able to notice, appreciate, and enjoy the beauty in the snow-covered world, the Christmas decorations and lights, the singing (choirs, school concerts, cds, and the like).  May the beauty not only feast your eyes, may it feed your hearts and souls as well, bringing peace, serenity, and love to your life and your world!  

Beauty – one of the many gifts of December!
