Finding Warmth this Holiday Season

In today’s culture, there is a lack of respect and kindness. It is acceptable to speak on any topic, reveal any information to anyone publicly disgracing anyone, misuse retail stores to spread propaganda, delve into Church teachings and practices to become experts just to not live it and destroy human dignity in others in all ways feasible, and make sure that anyone who is not a cookie cutter of what they believe is “right” shall be shunned by the planet and not even treated as a 5th class citizen—if you aren’t their mold, you must cease to exist entirely. It isn’t poverty. It is disgrace just for the sake of sport with a closed mindset and an obsession to control other humans. It becomes a war effort. These have short tunnel vision, with a warfare mindset, of ultimate destruction as the only option. They gain momentum by gathering others on board to help join the chant of hate and segregation. The culture of negativity which is already prevalent in society is fertilized with more of the same. They seek to squelch any motivation and ambition, destroy all morale and morals, and make sure any daily joy is extinct. There are no possibilities of any new paths, and if any arise, they are smashed to a million pieces. They trample on any privacy—everything is exposed. Sex is God. Hate is King of the World. Bad wins and good loses. Even letting time pass by nothing changes. The culture of society is inspired to a higher degree of corruptness and hate. No one bulks. Everyone listens to those they think are in authority, just because they have “authority sounding voices”, enticing others to hate. Not questioning it, just joining in.

Why isn’t anyone realizing this? For a country based on faith, very few of those who practice any faith stop this. Texas which was not too long ago seen as the “Bible belt” has had no problem swaying to verbal stoning, privacy invasion, and segregation. Good words and practices are pretty much gone from society entirely.

For the last 1.5 years I have written on inspiring kindness and respect. This has been countered by these people. They thrive on spreading hate and teaching others how to hate. So much so, as to significantly add digression and evil to an already deteriorated culture.

Find warmth by buying a coffee maker and spend time setting goals for next year of how to change the world.

Value of Life

The end of December is a popular time for couples to get engaged. There is pressure to find the perfect diamond ring that signifies the value of the women’s life to the man. While the ring is representative of the value of the love in the relationship, nothing can replace the value of the life of the person, or both people, for that matter. Even for those who are not engaged or married, knowing that the value of their human life is given by God, not by any human person, helps put the world into perspective and God who created it—God who is over the world, everyone on Earth, and all the stars and planets in the entire universe.

In December, Christians celebrate Jesus’ birth. His life was primarily here for that purpose to let us know that each of us is important and loved by God. The value of human life is important in that God sent Jesus so that humans could be worthy of God’s forgiveness and have eternal life with Him in heaven. Humankind could never make reparation for our sin on our own to God. Jesus had to make up the difference. He makes our contriteness perfect and our thanksgiving worthy to God. The value of life in the one baby of Jesus was of immense, divine value. His life was for the value of all of humankind.

When you are shopping for gifts this holiday season, step back and think about more than the obligation to find a present. See the beauty in the person you are giving the gift for and what you appreciate about them. We all are gifts, and oftentimes we don’t recognize all the good qualities in others. You might consider buying a gift to give such as a painting or jewelry, that captures the heart of the beauty and value of the person. Or you might make a gift giving from the heart. Whatever you do, remember that the value of each life is priceless and God’s love invaluable.

A How-To Holiday Guide Special Edition Article: Preparing for the Gift

Make your gifts special this year adding a little extra thought and pizzazz. Here are some options of how to give a gift to someone!

Option 1:
The first is taking a gift you have purchased and just handing it to someone. After all, the thought is in the actual present isn’t it? This seems a little too efficient and a little dull, as if the gift was just handed off. While there will most likely be appreciation, there is not much thoughtfulness with this option.

Option 2:
The second, more common option, is wrapping a gift—and not just wrapping a gift but finding just the right wrapping paper. There are all sorts of ways to wrap a present. In the olden days, before wrapping paper, there was newspaper. A person would sort through the newspaper for the comic section and use it to wrap a gift. A special, news section, might be preferred, or the sports section if the person was a sports fanatic. For those with children, mothers instruct children how to disassemble a paper bag to use to wrap a gift and then decorate it. As specialty designed wrapping paper created with love, a child’s artwork on the wrapping paper is a way to add a nice extra touch which family members can cherish. For adults who are wrapping paper connoisseurs, with a flair for the hunt of the perfect paper, there are a variety of designs to choose such as reindeer, snow, trees, seasonal words, religious art, Santa, candy canes, swirls and stars, trendy holiday printable patterns and colors, and red, green, blue, white, as well as shiny silver, and gold. Wrapping paper can cost anywhere from $1 at a dollar store to $20 per roll or more. Wrapping a gift with wrapping paper is a talent in itself by carefully folding the ends just right and and taping the gift seamlessly with nimble fingers of tape. For others, services are available to hire someone to wrap the gift professionally for you. [Have you ever seen an ad hiring for a gift wrapper asking for your resume of experience? More real than Santa’s elves, job postings like this actually exist.] Then of course there are boxes and bags of all sizes, to-from labels, ribbons and tissue paper with just about as many varieties as wrapping paper, and to make it a hallmark gift, don’t forget to include a special card. You could potentially spend a fortune making this gift special all to be disposed. And what is so intriguing about that? The anticipation. You are paying for anticipation and thoughtfulness but it is fairly important as part of the presentation. As an added benefit to the fun, part of preparing the gift is the giddiness that comes from having a secret surprise for someone. With the hope to bring them honor and happiness with it, gift givers at the very least hope the gift is seen as a token of their thoughtfulness and love. The process of preparing a gift causes joy to the giver because of the thought and effort is for another and for their happiness, and as the saying goes “it is in giving that we also receive”.

Option 3:
Option three, is the gold package option when it comes to thoughtfulness and extra effort to make the gift special. One way is accessorizing the main gift with a series of presents to be opened all wrapped as one. Another way to make the gift unique, could be creating accessories to adorn the gift maybe with a customized ribbon which is braided, or a bookmark as a gift tag, or a USB drive as a to-you from-me hang tag with family photos loaded on it, or perhaps the present has been blessed especially if it is a gift where this is appropriate. What other creative ideas do you have? One unique gift I received once had miniature ornaments tied to the ribbon, which was both adorable and functional as it could be hung on my tree. These were kept as an unforgettable keepsake and the all the thoughtfulness that was put into the present was remembered for its uniqueness.

Part of the gold package option is not just the presentation of the gift but the presentation of how it is given. Often taken for granted is the presentation of making the gift special, beyond the wrapping paper. Reflect for a moment right now on how you give gifts. Do you hand it off with a big smile? Are you enthused cooing with words “I think you’ll just love this”, or do you just sort of nudge it with your finger across the table and make excuses like “I didn’t know what to get you”. Now, spend some time considering how you receive gifts. Do you open the gift with an expressionless facial expression in a placid manner with all lackluster? Or do you squeal? Without realizing it, more times than not, we respond as a response to the emotions of another person. It is a form of empathy and can be contagious. With the enthusiasm and happiness of gift giving, it can be rewarding for the gift giver to see that the gift is appreciated.

In Preparation and Anticipation
With gift giving, the way the gift is presented, the way it is wrapped, the thoughtfulness and the experience opening it, all are for the delight of the recipient adding up to the grand finale of finally discovering what is inside. All of this creates anticipation setting the stage for what is to come. Maybe it is a special gift which you have anticipated and are nervous about receiving. The giver can add a lot to the moment with how they present a gift setting the stage and mood either with enthusiasm, warmth, environment, or words indicating it is a very special gift.

Anticipation ties in with hope. It causes a person to hold their breath in a sense knowing something is to come. The same is with Christmas and Christ’s birth. We spend these last few weeks before Christmas in preparation for what is to come. It’s how you set the stage and prepare in anticipation for that ‘special moment’. Think of how you prepare for the gift and make that part of the present, both with the presents you are giving and preparing spiritually for Christmas.

As Easy As Pie

Acts of Hospitable Kindness

As we march into July, it is a perfect time to practice random acts of kindness while being neighborly and hospitable. Although it may not be as common now, it wasn’t long ago that neighbors brought food to one another out of thoughtfulness. The gift was sharing the latest recipe that was a success, or a sample of the latest batch of cookies, hot out of the oven, still warm. It was a good excuse to go next door, or across the street and say, “Howdy”. Texas spirit in full-swing, always with a warm welcome, a positive greeting, and some of the funniest phrases on the planet, to spread some love.

With 4th of July approaching, traditionally there are parades, picnics, and of course, early lawn seating for the spectacular fireworks. The festive celebration of independence is an ideal time to congregate with friends and meet new people. It’s an energized time of excitement and an outburst of friendliness as friends get together to celebrate. This year is much different with cancellations to all the major celebrations. With COVID-19 restrictions still in affect, the 4th of July is one of independence rather than togetherness.As you plan for your own unique 4th of July event, think of others who may be by themselves this holiday. Try extending an invitation ahead of time for someone who may be alone to join you. Even if you are planning to have a simple 4th of July, watching the fireworks on TV or online, you might consider having a few people over and hosting a fireworks viewing get-together in your backyard. If you are already planning to attend an event, see how you can offer to help by bringing a dish or lending an extra hand with setting up. Remember to practice social distancing, while still be social!I challenge you to the “Oh, Say Can You See, Challenge”, of seeking out ways to be randomly kind this 4th of July, by extending hospitality and kindness to those you don’t know. Dish out an extra bit of kindness to those around you! Being welcoming and friendly is part of our country’s culture and heritage. Take the liberty this 4th of July of being extra kind.
