Holiday Blessings 2015

Winter reflection beckons me to visit precious memories, connections, challenges, growth, and accomplishments that have blessed my life over the past months. As the holiday season arrives, I reflect upon the gift of simplicity, and how the power of this one word continues to have a transformative impact on my life. Appreciating how words of wisdom never seem to grow old, I deeply cherish the lyrics of this enduring song like a dear ole’ friend in this modern world that grows bigger, faster, and increasingly techy.  

"Simple Gifts”
(written and composed in 1848 by Shaker Elder Joseph Brackett)

Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
We will be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.

In the Spirit of Simplicity
and Seasonal Gift-giving,
