#LightTheWorld: A Christmas Compass

via Daily Prompt: Compass

Yesterday I had the opportunity to sing in our Church service. The piece I chose was Gesù Bambino by Pietro Yon with the Frederick H. Martens translation, although I sang the first chorus in the orignal Italian. It is such a simple, beautiful hymn paying tribute to the sweet, humble birth of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. 

Last year my Church invited all to particpate in the Light The World Christmas Initiative. In simple, meaningful ways we were invited to do a simple act of kindness, of service to others for 25 days. It was so much fun that my husband and I were excited that it was carried over into this 2017 Christmas season. 

Just like the brightly shining star guided the Wise Men to where the Christ Child lay, we use the #LightTheWorld suggestions to act as our compass, guiding us with ideas for simple acts of Christlike love and service to others. Our actions, whether seen or unseen, become part of the #25Days25Ways “grateful chorus swell” that “acclaim His name.”

For truly as we adore others in Christlike service, we are showing that we truly “adore Him, Christ the Lord.”

#25Days25Ways

A thoughtful challenge every day, well, most days. Some days I am realizing that just living my daily life produces some good things on a regular basis, daily. 

I do not need the reminder to do something good or kind every day. Some days, it is simply built into how I live my life so the reminder becomes, “You are doing just fine.” 

Thank Heavens for the New and Improved me, well, at least for today.
