What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Christmas means nothing

Disney Keynote Speakers
Joy in your spirit.

Christmas means nothing without Easter.

Yet Santa dominates the Easter Bunny for media exposure and consumer habits.

Christmas paradox revealed as i woke up this morning

Church epiphany
About a year ago i snapped this with an iPhone. Had an epiphany an hour ago.

Christmas paradox revealed as i woke up this morning.

Do i really believe in the spirit of gift giving as a part of a Christian belief system or am i a zombie on the treadmill of life, going through the motions?

Going through the motions is easy because retailers for many decades have crafted American habits and rituals – buy, buy, buy.

If we don’t offer gifts to people we love, that means we don’t care as much as everyone thinks we should care.

Right?

So as i awoke an hour ago, i couldn’t help but wonder, “How many times do you attend Church a year?”

Does your commitment to be physically present within a Christian community (just an hour a week) match and support your thinking for why you should give and recieve gifts?

Disney’s Grand Floridian Christmas Tree timelapse video

Disney’s Grand Floridian Christmas Tree timelapse video.

Cheryl lit our home tree last night.

The older i get the less i like the whole push for material gifts under the tree. 

Why wait?

Tradition?

Who’s tradition?

Retailers?

Make your own decisions.

What if “gift giving” knew no calendar?

Copied this from my Facebook update flashback

Wall mural on building
6:20pm…how lucky are those who believe in something with all their heart?

 

Years ago, an epiphany. i used to celebrate Easter once a year. But came to a realization i was cheating myself.

Christmas means nothing without Easter.

Yet the Easter Bunny can’t hold a candle to Santa.

i had created this script that Christmas was the most important “holiday”.

And then the epiphany…

We come to know the true meaning of Easter when we learn to celebrate it every day.

Whether you celebrate Easter or not, a sincere wish for you: Happy present moment.

Time marches on

Christmas time
Christmas 2017, Allentown, PA.

 

Christmas time
Christmas, 2004, Walt Disney World.

 

Maybe a dozen Christmases separate the two photos.

Chapin, Katie, Tyler, and Carter (Pheasant in mouth) behind Magic Kingdom.

Cheryl and Chapin at Uncle Mike’s in Allentown a few days ago.

May all of them (and us) make 2018 their (our) best year ever.

Chapin is an 11th-grader at the High School closest to Magic Kingdom.

Katie is attending graduate school in New York City.

Tyler just finished Navy boot camp.

We buried Carter in 2010.

Time waits for no one.

Go.

Serve others to the best of your ability.
