Christmas Lights

Everyone enjoys Christmas lights and Christmas carols. But what would be a nice message to people who do not know much about the Bible or believe it?

I think it would be to say to all the shoppers in the malls, that they are, themselves, "Christmas lights," lights against the darkness.

This is a dangerous universe, and as far as we know, all there is, to help make things safer and warmer, is people.

Sure, I think there is a God, and our most obvious help on earth, are the good things God teaches in the Bible, but still, for the most part, we have to do it.

I like these videos that look at low birth rates and predict that world population will peak and then decline, so that from a population of 7 billion today, in 75 years the world will be down to 7 billion again.

Currently, population growth and decline conditions are different for different parts of the world.

With Alberta's expanding economy, and population growth (people are a resource), hopefully this will make it so that everyone can prosper.

But what is going to happen in the debt strapped countries in Europe, with a declining economy and a declining population, I don't know.

But if you are reading this, my message to you is shine; overcome the darkness within us all and shine; "you are a light against the darkness." And sometimes, it could be just as easy for you, as moving things around and making it warmer, for someone else.

You are Christmas Lights.

MERRY CHRISTMAS.
