This is the time of the year that our thoughts turn to three things:
When thinking of your family, thank them for their love. Tell them the gift you give them this year is not a tradition of society but because you truly care about them. If you have been having difficulties, remember that they argue with you because they care about you. Life is short and all arguments are petty. Let the next year be about forgiveness.
- Those in need
When thinking about those in need, do not look at their problems as an indictment of their behavior. Rather, view the situation as an opportunity, an opportunity for you to make a difference in someone's life. You cannot undo the past, but you can change the future.
When thinking of God, remember that on this day He came to Earth to save you. Remember that He created a world in which you have the choice to love your family, neighbors and fellow man or turn your back. If you chose the prior, you will be rewarded here and in heaven. If you chose the latter you suffer the loneliness that follows both in life and death.
