There are a great many ideas that fill the holiday season. Manger scenes are meant to remind us of the incarnation celebrated by Christians. The Jewish Hanukkah celebration symbolized by the menorah. The television commercials, the hustle and bustle and the desperation that sometimes accompanies it. The nostalgic seasonal specials and the programs that present the year in review. I am reminded more frequently as the years pass of the fleeting nature of time. Our lives are described as a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. With shorter days we are called to contemplation and renewed priorities. With the coming of the new year we resolve to act consistently with those priorities. My advice is to value time over money and to invest both wisely.
May this season bring you time well spent with friends and family.
We look forward to working with you in 2018!
