The Christmas Promise

Generally our Christmas cards say things like, peace, hope, and love.

I want to add: promise

I like to think of this time of year as a time to start over, clean your slate; it’s a time to dream dreams, have a vision, and it’s a time for the dream to come true – that’s the promise.

Peace, hope, and love are wonderful! Don’t get me wrong. It’s just so much more real to me when it is a promise. Something you can put your faith in, like a child, to truly believe that something you wished for WILL happen. And it is basically simple. No fangled hoops to jump through. It is a promise of the good things the New Year will bring, the faith that you believe those good things will transpire.

May your promises be BIG and full of peace, hope, and love!
