The winter solstice has been the focus of religious celebrations for thousands of years. Goodness, our displays of Christmas lights have their origin in the bonfires of antiquity, when people burned wood to induce the sun not to disappear and the light to remain a part of their lives.
I am a Christian, and deeply respectful of other religions. The light is the light, all things considered, from whatever perspective it is viewed.
For me, the Son is the Sun. Four days after the winter solstice, light is increasing, and I celebrate the birth of Jesus. In my life, Christmas is a time of hope and happiness for family and friends. My heart is never more open and the love inspired by this season propels my best thoughts to each of you, including those who eat our meals.
For everyone who has been helped by Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, for those being helped now, and all who will benefit in the future, I invoke the spirit of the season.
We are not prisoners of habit, we have free will. We are not alone, we have each other, and Something More.
I'll spend Christmas with my family. My friends will be in my mind and heart. And that includes everyone associated with Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating—our employees, our franchises, our distributors, our customers. May the light shine in all our souls.
