Happy Holidays, Beloveds!

Rumi Don t hide from the thorns

"If you could get rid
of yourself just once,
the secret of secrets
would open to you.
The face of the unknown,
hidden beyond the universe,
would appear on the mirror
of your perception.”
~ Rumi

Rumi captured my heart years ago. His words remind me to be still and look within for what I'm searching for as I embrace whatever is in this moment. So grateful for Rumi and grateful for you in my life! I hope you're having a wonderful Holiday season full of love and delight.

I'm emersed in decorating the house for the season. Have I mentioned I was raised by Christmas elves? I'm happy to report that the work of carrying everything up from the basement and placing it around the house is easier this year after my weekly swims and workouts in the water. As I approach my 73rd Birthday it's a gift to have more strength! A gift I have finally given myself!

Below is the beginning of the process. I bought the tree yesterday, December12th, and put the lights and one decoration on tonight. This is the tallest and skinniest tree I've ever bought. I had to get the 6-foot ladder out to put the angel and lights on top. Likely will need it again as I decorate the top of the tree. I think I've learned my lesson! No more 8-foot trees!!!

In Closing

As we all go into this Holiday season, my heart is heavy amid my decorating distractions with the wars and violence in our world. I also have intimate friends and family facing illnesses and struggles. May we each find ways to serve those near and far that are facing these challenges. I believe in the power of prayer and right action. We can listen to our hearts to find out what we can do to bring more love, peace and healing into this troubled world. As we sit with our own sweet hearts in quiet, we can find the strength to be of service and open to the Goodness that lives in each of us.

In the midst of all the challenges, may we see not only the harsh realities, but also the tender loving sweetness that is a part of being human. I pray your Holiday fills with peace, love and joy!

Love You Always,

Sherry Tuegel
