APPRECIATING the gifts of renewal, rejuvenation and recovery, I rejoice in December like a child lighting up the grey midnight of December 25.

Truly, amidst these changing times and challenging hours, may you and I be blessed with the warmth of ‘elan vital’ or vital energy as we journey through the pathway of living.

Salamat! Baby Yesu for granting my Christmas wish for wellness, healing and wisdom.

Celebrating the season, may I share this Christmas poem by Robbie Johnson.

Orphan Robbie

‘Twas the coldest night,
They said nobody is coming
Nobody loves me.
Tears circled my eyes,
Searing pain burned my little heart,
oh what a lonesome night for an orphan..
Whoosh… shsh… softly an angel whispered to me,
Little boy, wipe your sorrow,
A little babe loves you dearly.
Star from Bethlehem shines, little Robbie
See the baby smile at you,
Baby Yesu loves you.
Baby Yesu will stay,
Cry no more orphan Robbie
Baby Yesu will never abandon you.
Your name is written on the palm
He carries your name in his Heart
Be happy…
Gee… Baby Yesu… Salamat pu
No longer am I alone
Baby Yesu I love you too!’

Finale

My favorite December is here. What a joyous month it is as we exult in the loving tenderness, inspiring gifts of faith and compassion.

May you be blessed with the the sweetness, sentimentality and succor of a unforgettable December. May your family, friends and friendly co-workers enfold you in their embrace of care, concern and constancy.

Hold their hand now. Put down this newspaper. Hug them now.
Merry Christmas!
