With so much troubling talk all around us,
I've been thinking a great deal about peace
and how I can't control the atmosphere everywhere
but I can bring a gentle spirit,
a kind word,
a smile everywhere I go.
I can't change everything for good
but I can do something small...
I can cook someone sick a hot meal
and pass out snacks to the homeless man at the traffic light.
If you're lonely, I can listen.
Merry Christmas, friends.
Tidings of comfort and joy!
Let's leave a trail of compassion and care everywhere we go.
Let peace begin here.
