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