Message from the President

On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11 (NIV)


This week I read, “I choose to give Presence, not just presents!”* I love the thought of this. Every gift you share this season conveys a meaning to you, as the giver, and to the receiver. Whatever the meaning, it assures the receiver that you are grateful for their presence in your life. The gift, whether tangible or intangible, is an acknowledgement that “I see you” and “I connect with you.”

Time spent with loved ones delivering a gift; addressing holiday cards; dressing the Christmas tree; baking, cooking, or sharing a meal; watching a movie; snuggling; conversing with family and friends; catching up with acquaintances; sleeping late; shopping; reading a book; setting goals; drinking tea, hot chocolate, coffee or all three, serve as reminders that nothing beats being present to the persons in your life.

This Christmas, let’s not allow distractions to get in the way of us being fully present to those around us. Let’s respond to cries for help even if they come from those not considered family. Humanity is God’s family, and as we open our hearts, hands, homes, and wallets to those whose cries we hear, we share the greatest gift there is: Love! God’s Love is ever present and never, ever absent.

Affirm: “Love’s presence fills my heart and home this Christmas. I am blessed beyond measure. The way is now open for me to share these blessings with others.”

The Board of Directors and the entire Universal Foundation for Better Living family wishes you a safe, joyous and prosperous holiday season.

Staying Present to the Holy Presence,
Sheila R. McKeithen
