When you think about a satisfying (not perfect, but satisfying) Christmas, what comes to mind? What would you hear. . .

Smell. . .

Taste. . . 

Touch?

Go back over your list more slowly. Are there memories or stories connected to those sensory joys? How are your physical senses connected to a spiritual wisdom?

Pick out one or two of the items on your list and work toward a small but realistic way to see or smell or taste one or two of those joyful things. Give thanks for the gift of our senses to bring us to a meeting place between heart and mind.
