Patch Of Faith Makes Miracles Happen At Holidays

The results are in and the facts are irrefutable. A patch of faith can make miracles happen. In the beginning many questioned this result, but the skeptics have been silenced. Having faith in God works, especially at the Holidays.

The truth is it works all year long, but many of us only remember our faith at the Holidays or when tragedy hits us.

At times like this we try and patch our faith together so that we can prove to ourselves, and our families that we really are worthwhile people. Well of course we are. Why would you ever question yourself that way?

Why all the attempts to be politically correct and to avoid certain symbols of the Holidays and certain salutary greetings when all that is needed is a patch of faith that let’s you know it’s how you feel and your traditions, not what you say that counts.

Why all the uncertainty about what we should and shouldn’t say and do. We used to know instinctively how to act. We used to have enough faith in ourselves so that we didn’t have to patch ourselves together to get the true spirit of the Holidays.

How about reaching back into our pasts and remembering the Holidays we spent with our parents as we were growing up and how wonderful everything seemed to most of us – how miraculous. We didn’t need anyone to tell us to get in the mood in those days, it was a given.

How about looking around at our family and friends and marveling at how much we have to be thankful for? How about rejoicing at the wonder of it all? Why is it so hard just to relax, enjoy and do what comes naturally?

I guess I’m old fashioned. I always appreciate the gifts God has given us more at the Holidays. I always make a ton of resolutions for the New Year, and I always forgive myself when I break them.

I want to wish you all, as it applies to each and every one of you, a very happy Hanukah, a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.
