Everyone knows that Christmas song with the refrain: FA la la la la la, la la la…

It occurred to me that the first syllable “FA” is made up of two letters.  F for forgive and A for apologize. Then comes the la la la part.

When our tongues get ahead of our brains and our hearts, the outcome is rarely a good one. I confess that I am guilty of this way too often.

This Christmas let’s each consider whether we need to forgive someone or apologize to someone.  This is the kind of gift that spreads the message of peace – reflecting what Christmas is all about in the first place.
