Merry Sixth Day of Christmas!
This day offers a gentle opportunity to reflect on the moments in our lives of birthing
Consider the “a-laying” moments and situations when
… a new idea was hatched
… a unique thought came to mind
… an alternative way of doing things emerged
… a possibility became a reality
… taking “the road less travelled” challenged previous ways of thinking
… ‘push came to shove’ and a decision was made
… rebirth was experienced
… ‘the light turned on’ inside us and insight clarified our situation
… our spirit was ignited with passion
… we physically gave birth to another human being
… our life was changed as we stood up for ourselves or another
… hope began to be felt again in spite of the pandemic as vaccines are beginning to be distributed.
Consider the a-laying moments and situations when others were used to
… give us birth
… draw us forth into creativity
… breathe life into our hurts
… teach us something may not even have known we needed to know
… bring healing to our body, mind, spirit
… inspire us
On this, the Sixth Day of Christmas
may we ‘make’ time, not just ‘take’ time
to consider the “a-laying” opportunities this day brings.
Happy Sixth Day of Christmas!

Christmas Day began the Season of Christmas in the Christian tradition, offering a lovely stretch of time to reflect, enjoy, delight in, and consider how we can bring a little bit of Christmas into our life and the lives of others every day. May the Twelve Days of Christmas be a reminder that Christmas isn’t just “one day.” The Spirit of Christmas can continue to be alive in hearts and lives every day – even beyond the Season of Christmas.
