My dear friends, we love you so very much.
In this busy holiday season allow yourself to take time and experience the wonder of being alive. There is very great love present on this planet, emanating not only from the heavens, as it is at all times, but more importantly from the depths of human hearts.
During the holidays there is a desire to look at the small things with gratitude, such as a tiny gift that you know a loved one will appreciate, a tiny kindness show to a stranger, a tiny coin tossed in the bucket for a charitable cause. These" tiny" wonders all spring forth from the One greater love that wishes to rise up within all of you.
During the holidays, there is a desire to open your hearts and share your gifts, talents, love, and resources with one another. It is a season in which people realize how much they have already. It is a seasons that inspires hearts that are charitable and souls that are kind. It is a time to stop, pause, look around, and realize that your world is filled with goodness. There will always be those who are lost in confusion and chaos, and yet if you look, there is also so much good in the hearts of mankind - so much beauty, so much kindness, and so much love, just longing for the smallest of reasons to surface.
You are all angels walking among angels. Some of you realize it. Some of you don't. In time you will embrace the totality of the goodness that exists not only within the hearts of others but also within your very own. Take time. Stop. Look around and witness the love coming to the surface, and where you do not yet see it, contribute love, for it is the very nature and essence of God to both give and receive. Happy Holy Holidays dear ones. We celebrate with you during this season of love and good will.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message from Ann
I love the holidays! It is a time when my playful and creative spirit comes to the surface and spills over. I have been known to "elf" people by making wreaths that I then stick on their doors late at night, leaving them to be found the next morning. I like to carry candy canes in my purse and give them to the clerks at the stores.
I swap recipes with strangers in the grocery store. I share my home with friends, make homemade goodies, and allow myself to sit on the couch and watch happy Christmas movies. I share a little more deeply with people, and I can't stop thinking about how to create beauty in the lives of all those I care about. The season gives us all a reason to love a little bit more, to look a little more deeply for the good in others, and to draw from our hearts the good that is always there just waiting to be shared.
There is a human tendency to focus on what is wrong with the world or wrong with our lives. And yet how much more beautiful to look at what is right. I've told this story before. I was in a store when a lady was complaining loudly to the poor young clerk who could not fix her problem. I silently looked for something good in this woman and saw laugh lines on her face. "At least you have a sense of humor," I telepathically sent her soul the message.
She stopped, looked at the clerk and said something to the effect of, "Well, I guess we just have to laugh at this!" I could hardly believe it! Another time I had run to the store to get some supplies for a spontaneous trip. I heard two girls loudly arguing about what sort of bug spray to get to prevent bedbugs! Their discussion was so loud and went on so long, I knew the angels were trying to reach me. "OK God, NO bedbugs for me!" I prayed.
Sure enough some folks in the hotel where I stayed got bed bugs, but I did not. These girls, whom most would have considered obnoxious were a good warning in my life, even as they struggled to keep their own travels easier! The glass is always half empty and, at the same time, half full... what will we focus upon?
When we look for the good in another, we draw it forth. When we look for the good in our world, we empower it. When we focus upon something we give it our energy, our light, and the most precious gift of our present moment in time. I no longer want to waste precious moments of life focusing on what is wrong with this world.
Instead the angels have taught me to look around, or as Jesus said, "turn the other cheek," and look for what is good in the hearts and souls of human beings. It certainly makes our lives a lot happier, and as we shine this light of our acknowledgment upon others they just might step into greater light themselves.
I love you all! To me, you look like bright and beautiful souls!
Happy Holiday Season
