The message at our Christmas Eve service this year was focused on ways to find enchantment in a disenchanted world.
This really resonated with me. I have been having MANY conversations in the last couple of months about national and world events that fall under the definition of disenchantment. Here it is straight from the dictionary
|disillusionment, disappointment, dissatisfaction, discontent, discontentedness, rude awakening;|
Then look at the other side of the coin……
noun: a feeling of being attracted by something interesting, pretty, etc.: the state of being enchanted
a quality that attracts and holds your attention by being interesting, pretty, etc.
Choosing enchantment as my one word to avoid becoming mired down in disenchantment seems to be a “no-brainer”!
I don’t plan to hide my head in the sand and ignore national and world events. However; I will put them into perspective.
