Hey Dearies!ღ It’s winter and it’s cooold.. But it’s not beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in a weather aspect because no winter here in the Philippines and it’s hot! supposed to be cold right? How I wish Jack frost to sprinkle the country with some icy glitter this wonderful time of the year. Funny how I am complaining about the hot weather yet I am putting up with the cold inside of me.. I have a heart of cold these days. I think I need a warm coat! Oh..I forgot I’m in the tropics but dearies, do you have something that can warm my heart of cold? A coat nor blanket I think will do.. Can I borrow?
Like in the midst of winter, chilly frosty breezy air and endless Goosebumps I caught myself being impassive like the winter frigidness brings. I feel the extremity of hibernating reality for a while. Being busy keeps me iced stoned. Left and right work duties, family responsibilities and family issues (something ugly happened) keep my head and hand shaking not because of coldness but because of commitments.
Here comes a thought of Christ, bubble thoughts in my head of what was it like when Christ was born. Is it cold or even snowing? But there was no mention of the realness of it. But I imagined Jesus coming out in a manger lying with only a blanket to keep him warm. Can you believe? How mighty! The time he was born he already experienced suffering and imagine his human life, growing up with the ridicule of the human wickedness. By Christ reflections, I am determined that I can bear the brunt of the icy cold emotions hanging around inside my heart knowing that Christ has offer his life on me.
My cold heart was like soaked in the sun, I see daylight with that wisdom whispering my ears and it softened my heart. But just as the sunlight chases away the cold, his light chases away the cold of my anxiety and lonesomeness. All I have to do is think of his wonders, tell him all my odds and leave them with him. Trying and trusting not to snatch them back again.
The spirit of Christmas therefore, isn’t always cold like the winter. In fact it has many meaningful awareness that starts deep within our current emotions and present circumstances happening around the world. Despite the disheartening tragedy of bombings, killings and human err and regardless of whatever or however your heart may feel. We are always reminded of the promises of strength and love.
That, there is no other than Christ that can do magic of firing up my cold heart. Indeed, he is the warm coat that I ever needed and wanted. Like the song first noel the three kings heard the angel story and follow the light of the star in the cold winters night. Noel! Born is the king of Israel! So, I let his light chase away the cold so I could go out and live my day in the sunshine of his love.
A self-reminder that djoyfulheartღ may not always be joyful in times but with the light of Christ she will and she will live through.
Now Dearies, I don’t have and need to neither borrow your warm coat nor blanket because I already have more than enough warm with me and HE IS THE MAKER OF THE SUN. Sing Praise! xღ
