Joy of Saint Nicholas Haiku







Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating with Saint Nicholas
the love of God in the Incarnation.



must be open to it!
~~~~~~~~~~

Good Saint Nicholas
Most generous follower
Model of giving

Good Saint Nicholas
 He teaches humility
Heed his example
~~~^j^~~~

So it is that we are called to follow the Savior in HUMILITY and LOVE for all.  And Saint Nicholas lived his life in such a way that we might know that it is possible even today to be giving and loving as our Savior and Lord has taught us to be.

  5. modeling goodness, finding it within ourselves and others, is surely a practice of humility and generosity.

  6. no matter where we reside, what beliefs we carry in our hearts we can all come together in love. kindness, caring, love, light know no boundaries. some of us are entering winter, others welcoming spring, but we are all spinning round under the same stars, welcoming the same sun. thank you for your haiku this friday and your celebration of generosity.
