Another Year has come to an end, many things may have come to pass within this year, some were great others were not so good. But the good news is we made it through another year through this hectic and semi-chaotic world of ours. Now people will make new years resolutions they will try hard to keep and probably wont. The best way to make this new year a better one is to choose to make a change within yourself. Choose to be kinder, happier, friendlier and to forgive as well as to try to be understanding towards one another. Changing the core of who you are and how you view and interact with the world around you is the key to making changes elsewhere in your life.
We here at Transient Reflections / One lifetime Blog and Barbier Family Blog want to wish all of you a Happy, Productive new year full of personal growth and happiness.
Happy New Years!!!!!!

To all my readers, friends, family and extended family, I pray that you have a merry Christmas. I also pray that in the new year to come you find peace within yourself, love for all living things including yourself. May you be guided by the hand of god and may his love fill your heart and lives. Know that I love every single one of you and that I know I have been blessed to have all of you in my life. I know I may not always have expressed how much you meant to me in the past because like everyone else I allowed the madness of modern life to keep me from the people and things that matter most. Thank you for being a part of my life and may God bless you all.
I know many of you will never see or read this post but I know within my heart you will feel it within your heart.
Merry Christmas to All
With Christmas right around the corner and the economy still in an unstable state seems we worry more about the finances than the family. So what you may not be able to buy the newest game system, tablet or any other high dollar gift, it isn’t about the cost of the gift nor is it important to try to keep up with the neighbors. When I was growing up there was no worrying about if I got a gift just like the neighbor kids, we were just happy to get something and to be with family. Nowadays seems Christmas gifts have to be several hundred dollars or even thousands at times, the spirit of Christmas is more about the presents for the kids today than God, Jesus or even the family. I feel we all have lost focus on the reason for the season. I don’t blame the parents, they just want their children to have the best and all the things we didn’t have as children. The cost of presents means little, it is the focus on the family and the celebration of the birth of our savior that really needs to be rekindled in our hearts.
Well hope all of you have a happy holiday season, Merry Christmas and even a happy new year.
With the Holidays season upon us it is once again time to think about friends and family as well as the less fortunate people of the world. We should not only be thankful for our own blessings, we should be bringing blessings and joy to others. The gift of love goes a long way as well as the gift of charity, to be in service to our fellow humans goes even further. Holidays also seem to remind us of the those we lost and the dreams that never came into fruition. To reflect on those things is perfectly normal but to wallow in the loss and or grief is not. We should celebrate the things we have received and rejoice in the time we had with those we have lost. Remember the love they brought into your life and the change they made in both you and your life. Dreams that never become reality are but seeds for new dreams that could come true.
During this holiday season try to share your love and kindle hope in others and most of all keep the faith.
Love, Understanding, Charity, Faith and Compassion be the main theme in your daily life.

Valentines Day is just around the corner and once again its time to show your special someone how much you care. It is nice to have one day a year to remind us how fortunate we are to have someone in our lives, but to think of them or show them how much we care only on one day a year is not the right way to be. We should treat each day with the those we love as a gift and a honor to have. Just my two cents worth on all of this, hope every one has an enjoyable valentines day.
Peace, R. Barbier
The Holiday season is upon us, Thanksgiving has passed but Christmas is just around the corner. We gave thanks for the physical things we have on thanksgiving now Christmas is for us to give thanks for the spiritual salvation and for the grace we have received. It is also a time of celebrating family and friends. Those we love and a sometimes we take for granted are shown love and appreciation on Christmas. We should always celebrate the gifts of love, compassion, companionship and family on Christmas along with the gift of our savior and his message.
Though through the years Christmas has mainly became a materialistic and commercially dominated holiday it still is the church appointed day to celebrate the birth and gift of Jesus Christ. Jesus taught forgiveness, unconditional love and compassion along with the way of peace. He brought those messages along with the message of salvation to Jew,Gentile,Rich,Poor,Powerful,weak, meek and every living soul on gods green earth.
So Love without condition, forgive without hesitation and follow a path of peace.
Merry Christmas to all
Christmas is around the corner and the shopping malls are busy
All the advertisement and Christmas specials are enough to make you dizzy
Bank accounts are drying up and credit cards are getting fat on the gifts we buy, Seems we all lost the true meaning of Christmas and we don’t know why.
Consumerism has replaced the feelings of family and of community across the land, Happiness is now measured by what you receive and not what you already have on hand.
Togetherness and fellowship has become ideals of our distant past, We traded those things for gadgets and toys that we know wont last.
Compassion and Charity though still present have become a rare sight, On this note I wish you a merry Christmas and a very good night
Merry Christmas All
