|Every season has a purpose, finding that purpose is one of the great challenges of life. Celebration is a time to think about where you are and how far you have come and who shared the journey with you.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story the banks are behind a lot of this because every bank is closed on every holiday. It seems the only time I have a check that I need to cash on some holiday and I need the cash right away. “And don't you dare forget,” she said rather sternly, “it is always the thought that matters.” At my age, it is very hard to keep the old thought machine working and grinding out thoughts. Then I remembered the recent Valentine's Day card I got for her. I watched her pick it up, open it and say, “Oh, you remembered. How thoughtful.” Then I began to think of how I felt when she said that. I am not sure how much I paid for that card, not much, you can be sure, but I think it was worth that comment. Thinking more about this, I begin to realize that holidays were not just “days off,” but really had something behind them for some people. I don't celebrate every holiday, who could? But I was beginning to realize that each holiday has some significance for somebody. I was thinking about what Solomon said, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Every season has a purpose, finding that purpose is one of the great challenges of life. Celebration is a time to think about where you are and how far you have come and who shared the journey with you. Tweet
