Season of Love

Season of Love by Amy Swanson (c) November, 2008 Holidays are here, and with them comes the time of celebration… times of love and laughter, times of joy and exultation. Moms and grandmas busy planning out the special dinner, while dads and grandpas talk about who’ll be the playoffs winner. Kids are full of laughter, cousins run and play together, while aunts and uncles gather to discuss the news and weather. Times are hard - but love is here, and this is the real treasure… It’s not about what we can buy - it’s that we’re all together. It’s more than gifts or parties, and more than buying toys… it’s not about the money spent. It’s all about the joys, of being loved by those most dear to us, and loving them; of reaching out to those in need, to be a helping friend. It’s not about what food we eat, nor the clothes we wear; the real celebration is love’s free gift, our hearts forever in it’s warm care.
