OUR WORLD - A Season of Giving


Ephemeral as a rainbow held in the hand


LOVE comes into it's own at this season of the year,
seeping gently into hearts like candle light


it is not the baubles on the Christmas tree,
nor the presents under it


it is the spirit of giving and sharing,
of caring for the orphans,
sharing our meal with the homeless or lonely,


of holding those in need in the warm embrace of our homes.

You cannot buy love, nor steal it, take it by force or keep it in a safe
deposit box.

It is only there for us to GIVE.

The more we give the further it goes, a well that never runs dry 
as long as we keep giving.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !
