Day Seven of the Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations

On the Seventh Day of Christmas...

Welcome to DAY SEVEN of our 
Twelve Days of Christmas Meditations 

WE LIGHT. “We light this candle as a reminder of the Christ that is Light within ALL of us”

WE SIT. SOMETIMES WE DANCE. NO, WE DEFINITELY HULA DANCE TODAY. In a circle, prayer hands or not, open hands or not, holding hands in a circle could work. You can try some bowing and “Namaste”. Namaste translates into “The light in me bows to the light in you”, for me this means “the Christ in me acknowledges the Christ in you.”

WE SING. Carrie Underwood's Do You Hear What I Hear. You can listen through the Spotify player at top left of page. ;)

I can ask God to guide and order every part of my life. Big things and minute details. What is the still small voice whispering? Do you know how to hear the gentle voice of guidance and instruction?

WE PRAY. You can try “God Our Father”, or any prayer of thanks here.

God Our Father(to tune of Where is Thumper)
God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
Thank you for our blessings
Thank you for our blessings

Try a few “Thank you God for ____”, or "God Bless ____". 

WE BREATHE. Hilarious and Oh-so-fun for the littles. It's not so much about the OM as it is about creating a way for them to connect with their BREATH. Om is an ideal way to teach them to feel their breath. Deep breath in, and exhale OM{sounds like A U M}. Three times. No idea how to "Om"? Click here for the how, or just make up your own way!

I really enjoyed today's message from Sarah Young's Jesus Calling:
December 19-
Do not be weighed down by the clutter in your life: lots of little chores to do sometime, in no particular order. If you focus too much on these petty tasks, trying to get them all out of the way, you will discover that they are endless. They can eat up as much time as you devote to them.
Instead of trying to do all your chores at once, choose the ones that need to be done today. Let the rest slip into the background of your mind so I can be in the forefront of your awareness. remember that your ultimate goal is living close to Me, being responsive to My initiatives. I can communicate with you most readily when your mind is uncluttered and turned toward Me. Seek My face continutually throughout this day. Let My Presence bring order to your thoughts, infusing Peace into your entire being.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3
Also read: Matthew 6:33
