Last Christmas was special. My whole family gathered together at our childhood home – a place of great beauty, good memories and peace. We dragged the dining room table and chairs to the end of the lawn and sat under the red flowers of the Pohutukawa tree dining on the richest of foods.
Afterwards, we lazed on the lawn in the sunshine enjoying the satisfaction of a good meal, enhanced by our body pumping out endorphins, the natural opioids often called the ‘feel-good’ hormones. Our body and souls were satisfied.
The loneliest day
As authors we can suffer that dryness of soul – as we stare at a blank screen, as we read yet another rejection, as we resist that cruel thought: ‘You’re wasting your time.’
'My soul will be satisfied with the richest of foods' Ps. 63:5
If you set your mind to do these things, the word of God promises you will be satisfied as with the best Christmas meal ever.
May you be richly blessed this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
