Reflect   Leave a comment


“As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart” Proverbs 27:19.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Often, we’re busy wrapping gifts, baking for parties, and dreaming of what to do while we don’t have to be at work. Haitians celebrate Christmas too. There’s midnight suppers, concerts, and gift giving, and they go all out starting at midnight on December 24. After Christmas, for Haiti, they have another huge party. There’s more celebrating to do after the most wonderful time of year. January 1 is also another huge party. It’s not only the first of the year, but it’s also their Independence Day. The slaves broke free from the French rule January 1, 1804. Haiti has parties with tons of food all week, and they celebrate with flowers and bands too. The voodoo culture is very much part of the tradition.

As you celebrate, Hope for Haiti encourages you to reflect. In what celebrations do you participate that reflect who you are? What do you care about, and what will be priority in the new year? Two things reveal what you care about: your schedule, and your pocketbook. Take a look over the past year, and reflect on what you care about.
