Where Are You Christmas?......

Christmas this year has seemed to be very far away.

It isn't that evidence is lacking declaring this to be the season....
Homes are decorated.
Tress are lit, their branches heavy with baubles and bangles.
Hearths are adorned with mementoes of years past.
Christmas music fills the air with lilting melodies.

No... it isn't that I can not see or hear Christmas all around me...
It is that I can not feel it... at least, not yet...

There are reasons for this I am sure...
Some I can attempt to change, others I wish with all my heart I had the power to change but I do not.

That doesn't mean that I will stop in my search this year or that I will not find Christmas...eventually... for wherever there is kindness and compassion there sparks a little of the Spirit of Christmas...

So, bear with me on my journey this year... realize that I know that this too - along with other moments will pass.

Regardless of where or what Christmas is for me this year... know that I wish you the best of everything. That I hope the Christmas spirit finds you wherever you may be and in whatever circumstance you may have.

May the true spirit of the season shine through and on all of us...

Where are you Christmas 
Why can't I find you 
Why have you gone away 
Where is the laughter 
You used to bring me 
Why can't I hear music play 

My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love
