Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Pre-Christmas Cheer

Let's get into the soul of Christmas with song: What better way to spread joyful news than through music! As you watch and listen to the first video, keep in mind its purpose is to stir the heart and lift the spirit as we enter the Christmas season.

Soul of Christmas
Full-bodied aromas
Permeate the nose
Along busy sidewalks
Where everything glows
Joyous melodies
Vibrate through the air
Amidst hustle 'n' bustle
Of shoppers everywhere

Bundled from head to toe
Out despite the weather
Wassailing and caroling
Keep us all together

Balsam, spruce and fir
Boughs that glisten and gleam
Bells, balls, and tinsel
Add magic to the scene

Sights, sounds, aromatic scents
Surround all the fuss
Bringing out the childish ways
In each one of us
Definitely one of the many joys of being a parent!

A time of giving
Welcomes heartfelt returns
Tears, smiles and laughter
Just what the spirit yearns

Great joy, new beginnings
The soul of Christmas brings
Happy birthday, Jesus
