"Making Spirits Bright"

Hello Viewers, Friends and Followers,
Where I am it feels good, very good.  You can go outside, walk around and play in the dirt without breaking a sweat like yesterday. I said last week that I would do two Christmas cards per week until the end of July to go along with the Christmas in July theme, challenges and personal inventory. Today's blog title is one that many of you have seen but have never given those three words much thought. It’s five months away from Christmas.  We send out cards and sing carols involving these words: “making spirits bright”.  What spirits are involved?  In  the song, “Jingle Bells”: Dashing through the snow. In a one-horse open sleigh. O'er the fields we go. Laughing all the way. Bells on bobtail ring.‘ Making spirits bright.  Throughout various communities every house or yard is decorated with hundreds if not thousands of light.  What is making spirits bright in this scenario?  Company staff parties are going on every weekend before, during and after Christmas.  Mixed drinks are being served to all who partake of this activity.  What is making spirits bright in the participating of this activityIf you are a spiritualist, making spirits bright may take on a very different approach when you think of the Holy Spirit versus satanic spirits.  Anyway, today I’m using those words as a sentiment on a card that I made to go along with the sketch at MojoMonday.blogspot.com.  When I include this card  in my charity box  for the soldier who will pick it out to send to someone on his or her list the thoughts in this blog will not  matter. To him or her, they may just want this time of the year to make spirits bright.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
