Merry Christmas/Feliz Natal!

This
is a time to reconnect
to yourself,
those around you,
and to Mother Earth;
to celebrate life and His birth.
On this day,
friends and families come together
with the promise they’ll be there
for each other
ever after.
It’s a day of reflection:
to take a deep breath,
contemplate,
say a prayer for those in need,
accept gracefully one’s fate.
And to embrace
those who bring you love…
Joy
is in making them smile and,
forever and always,
feel Him smile back
from up above.

É tempo
de fortalecer elos
consigo mesmo,
aqueles ao seu redor
e a Mãe-Terra.
É um momento de celebração
da vida e de Seu nascimento.
Neste dia,
amigos e familiares reúnem-se
com a promessa de que serão,
uns para os outros,
para sempre um porto seguro.
É um dia de reflexão:
respirar fundo,
contemplar…
rezar por quem sofre neste mundo;
aceitar, com graça, seu destino.
E abraçar
aqueles que lhe trazem amor…
Alegria
está em fazê-los sorrir e,
através dos tempos,
senti-Lo sorrindo de volta
do firmamento tão lindo.
