A Tapestry of Miracles - Happy Holidays from the Dixon Family

In these days of crass materialism, questionable ethics and dire threats to political and economic stability, I take heart in the magnificence of the human spirit and the grandeur of relationships that link us together. As a holiday wish to all of you, let me share a few lines I penned several years ago, as a wish of hope and joy from the Dixon family.

A Tapestry Of Miracles

Like brilliant golden strands
Woven delicately yet boldly
Among more dreary threads
To create a magnificent tapestry,
Our lives converge
In brief but sparkling brightness,
And then intertwine into
Radiant relationships
Borne of common hopes and dreams.

Countless encounters
Of human souls,
Guided by an unseen hand,
Link our lives together,
Creating cascading
Miracles of light,
Illuminating our hearts and minds
Amidst the harshness and the gloom
Of mortal life,
Ever weaving and preparing
The glorious, eternal tapestry
Of humankind.

Happy Holidays from all of the Dixons in Mesa, Arizona.

The Dixon Digest

Tonight I launched a family blog, The Dixon Digest, to replace a periodic newsletter of the same name I have published somewhat sporadically over the past few years. The web-page creation process I was using was just a bit too cumbersome, so I graduated to an easier method, using Blogspot.com, where several family members also have blogs.

We'd welcome the visit if you'd care to stop by now and then.
