Little Saviors…

The clock just struck Christmas here, and a song by the goo goo dolls is playing in my head.

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
Cuz I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

And it’s someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And that’s faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there’s 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

Regardless of what day Christ was really born on, today we celebrate a moment that changed history forever.

But really, shouldn’t every single child born make a mark on humanity?

Is there a way we can see the hope of salvation resting in every person we encounter, without devaluing Christ?

    Perhaps, we look at every person we meet, and see them as the very person we were supposed to encounter. Whether it is just a connection of the eyes, or a new friendship, that they were sent to be a point of light in our lives, not matter how small that light is.

    I believe that every person I meet, I have met for a reason, for me to put some sort of light into their lives. A smile, a hello, a hug, a word of encouragement. We pass by thousands of people in our weeks/months/year that we don’t connect, we don’t look at, we don’t acknowledge, yet they are there. So when there is a connection made, through eye contact, or a hello, or how was your day, that is the chance that has been given to you to be the light to them, that they may be to you.

    Does that make any sense?

    It totally makes sense Deana… thanks for bringing light to me today on the little things… it’s so easy to forget how sacred all of life is.
