Thought for the day, Wednesday 22nd December

From Earth Bound: Daily Meditations for All Seasons by Brian Nelson,
“Yule is a time for singing songs, decorating homes, and burning the traditional Yule log to symbolize the end of the old year and the birth of the new.
This event is well known to us from the most pagan of holiday carols, “Deck the Halls,” which not only tells us to hang holly throughout our homes, join with others in song and old stories, dress up in party clothes, and have a good laugh, but also to “see the blazing Yule before us.”
What would it mean if you regularly set fire to the past?
What if you left all your old joys and regrets in the ashes and met the future on its own terms?
The opportunity is now.”
