winter solstice2 400 TEXT

In the midst of the holiday chaos, the Winter Solstice brings a moment of complete silence.  December 21, 2017, marks the solstice.  Winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year.

The Winter Solstice is a time of reflection, during the darkest and longest night of the year. A time to spend with family and friends. A time to imagine what the coming year will bring. As an expression in nature, the Winter Solstice is the time to reflect on the power of our spiritual beliefs and the belief in the power of ourselves!

Happy Christmas

Cherokee Billie Spiritual Advisor


Happy Christmas and what have you done this year and what have you done this year to make the world a better place? What are your plans to improve the world in the New Year? Share your plans with us.

If you woke up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million who won’t survive the week.

If you have never experienced
the danger of battle,
the loneliness of imprisonment,
the agony of torture or
the pangs of starvation,
you are ahead of 20 million people
around the world.

If you attend a church meeting
without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death,
you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator,
clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep,
you are richer than 75% of this world.

Christmas in The Trenches

Christmas in the Trenches

This Story is based on a True Story from the front lines of World War I that I’ve heard many times. Ian Calhoun, a Scot, was the commanding officer of the British forces involved in the story. He was subsequently court-martialed for ‘consorting with the enemy’ and sentenced to death. Only George V spared him from that fate. — by John McCutcheon

My name is Francis Toliver, I come from Liverpool.
Two years ago the war was waiting for me after school.
To Belgium and to Flanders, to Germany to here,
I fought for King and country I love dear.
‘Twas Christmas in the trenches, where the frost so bitter hung.
The frozen fields of France were still, no Christmas song was sung.
Our families back in England were toasting us that day,
Their brave and glorious lads so far away.
I was lying with my messmate on the cold and rocky ground,
When across the lines of battle came a most peculiar sound.
Says I, “Now listen up, me boys!” each soldier strained to hear,
As one young German voice sang out so clear.
“He’s singing bloody well, you know!” my partner says to me.
Soon, one by one, each German voice joined in harmony.
The cannons rested silent, the gas clouds rolled no more,
As Christmas brought us respite from the war.
As soon as they were finished and a reverent pause was spent,
“God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” struck up some lads from Kent.
The next they sang was “Stille Nacht,” “‘Tis ‘Silent Night,’” says I,
And in two tongues one song filled up that sky.
“There’s someone coming towards us!” the front line sentry cried.
All sights were fixed on one lone figure trudging from their side.
His truce flag, like a Christmas star, shone on that plain so bright,
As he bravely strode unarmed into the night.
Then one by one on either side walked into No Man’s Land,
With neither gun nor bayonet we met there hand to hand.
We shared some secret brandy and wished each other well,
And in a flare lit soccer game we gave ‘em hell.
We traded chocolates, cigarettes, and photographs from home.
These sons and fathers far away from families of their own.
Young Sanders played his squeezebox and they had a violin,
This curious and unlikely band of men.
Soon daylight stole upon us and France was France once more.
With sad farewells we each began to settle back to war.
But the question haunted every heart that lived that wondrous night:
“Whose family have I fixed within my sights?”
‘Twas Christmas in the trenches where the frost so bitter hung.
The frozen fields of France were warmed as songs of peace were sung.
For the walls they’d kept between us to exact the work of war,
Had been crumbled and were gone forevermore.
My name is Francis Toliver, in Liverpool I dwell,
Each Christmas come since World War I, I’ve learned its lessons well,
That the ones who call the shots won’t be among the dead and lame,
And on each end of the rifle we’re the same.

Elf Donuts for Christmas!

Cherokee Billie Spiritual Advisor

Elf donuts

Elf donuts! Actually these are Cheerios to leave with Santa’s cookies! This is the cutest thing ever! I put this on my Facebook page last year and everyone just loves this idea and I wanted to share it with you. Just put a few drops of frosting then add sprinkles, confectionery or brown sugar. You can make a little box from a matchbox, small jewelry box, or cut up a cardboard box, tape it, and decorate with Christmas wrap. This is great to make with your children and grandchildren. I found this cute idea on Pinterest . Enjoy the holidays my friends,

Holiday blessings,

Wow, it’s hard to fathom Jim Morrison at 74 years of age.  He was born December 08, 1943.  There are some people that come in to this world who are not meant to be here for long periods of time and Jim Morrison was one of them.  He was an old soul and knew this at a young age when most children are still playing games.

Whatever Jim did he gave it 100 percent of himself.  He never compromised who he was for anyone, despite the enormous pressure on him once he became famous. He was a true free spirit, who lived his life the way that he wanted to.

Some of you may know the music of The Doors and not be aware of the many volumes of poetry that Jim Morrison wrote.  He really wanted to be a filmmaker and he was making a movie called HWY that…

Seasonal Movies with a Spiritual Message

Once again the world is filled with the merriment and joyful tidings of the holiday season. Gatherings are planned with family members and friends, children are queuing for Santa, and old carols ring out from the radio.

But even as they fill us with us with cheer, the holidays also demand a lot from our spirits. Prolonged anticipation and excitement take a toll, leading to more stress than some of us can handle. Feelings of grief, depression, anxiety, and insomnia are additional unwelcome guests at the party.

Luckily, there are a host of holiday films that help us remember what this season is all about – being thankful for what we have and what others do for us each and every day. For something to brighten your mood in the midst of all the celebrations, take a look at this list and find peace in Hollywood’s take on the holidays.

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

A Christmas classic since its inception, this film tells of the life of George Bailey a character who has spent his life in service to his family and his fellow citizens of Bedford Falls, New York. He was known for always helping others at what he feels is the expense of his own life and dreams. When a financial crisis looms, George hits the bottom of his despair and considers suicide, reasoning that all who know him would be better off if he were dead or had never existed at all. The spiritual message comes in the form of a bumbling angel sent down to help George see how much he has enriched the lives of those around him, in turn enriching his own life.

The Bishop’s Wife (1947)

This film is one of the best of the Christmas Classics. The Bishop’s Wife tells a story of an angel (Cary Grant) who comes down to earth in answer to a busy Bishop’s (David Niven) prayer. The angel helps the Bishop learn to adjust his priorities and comes close to falling in love with Julia, the Bishop’s wife (Loretta Young). The movie includes a lovely Skating/ Dance. Cary Grant always made everything look easy, but just how much work went into that illusion is exemplified by this film. Before shooting began, Grant could not ice skate, play the harp, or speak any French. By the time “The Bishop’s Wife” was finished shooting, he could do all three. It was truly an accomplishment of heavenly proportions. The film itself was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Picture, and received another nomination for Best Director. Make this movie a tradition for your family this year.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Six year old Susan has doubts childhood’s most enduring miracle Santa Clause. Her mother told her the “secret” about Santa a long time ago, so Susan doesn’t expect to receive the most important gifts on her Christmas list. But after meeting a special department stare Santa who’s convinced he’s the real thing, Susan is given the most precious gift of all – something to believe in. Delightful Christmas fantasy of a charming old man who believes he is Santa Claus, and the wonderful change he brings to the people around him. This perennial holiday classic is on many short-lists of the all time great Christmas movies. The film just oozes with warm-hearted humor. Very young Natalie Wood sparkles as Susan, who learns to stop being so grown up, and enjoy childhood, with all its wide-eyed wonder. Edmund Gwenn plays Kris Kringle, and lives the role. He totally connects with the kiddies who visit “Santa” at Macy’s department store.

Scrooged (1988)

A modern take on A Christmas Carol, Bill Murray takes the lead as television executive producer Frank Cross. A cynical modern-day version of Scrooge himself, Frank insists on having his staff work long hours on Christmas Eve to put on a live production of the Dickens classic as a ratings boost and fires an employee on the spot for questioning this decision. Alfre Woodard plays the overworked assistant/modern Bob Cratchit and Frank’s love interest is portrayed by Karen Allen. With Murray’s unique brand of comedic delivery, this modern twist nonetheless manages to portray the goodwill toward all men and Christmas spirit infusion of the original tale.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

The third in the series of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation stars the Griswold family headed by patriarch Clark, played by Chevy Chase, and wife Ellen, played by Beverly D’Angelo. Christmas Vacation tells of the misadventures of the Griswalds in their own home. Clark is determined to have an “old-fashioned family Christmas” but quickly realizes the challenge this presents within such a dysfunctional family group. While exaggerating almost everything about the holidays in his attempt to achieve his goal, Clark eventually comes to realize the true spiritual meaning of Christmas and embraces the family differences and flaws.

Home Alone (1990)

Another strong message of family ties and acceptance, Home Alone tells the story of eight-year-old Kevin who is accidentally left behind when his extended family goes away for their Christmas vacation. While Kevin initially sees his family as a burden and is overjoyed to be free of them, by the end of the film, he has come to realize what his family truly means to him. Ultimately, we see, through Kevin, that having family and friends around during the holidays is much more important and spiritually satisfying than any number of gifts under the tree.

Elf (2003)

Will Ferrell portrays Buddy, a human raised as an elf at the North Pole. While having the childlike mindset of an elf, Buddy is easily twice the size of all the other elves and thus always seems a bit out of place. Unfortunately, travelling to New York City to find his birth father, played by James Caan, doesn’t result in his fitting in either, as his elf enthusiasm and wonder at all around him wreaks havoc with his straight-laced father’s lifestyle. However, by the end of this classic and well- loved film priorities are reevaluated and the characters at both the North Pole and in New York City realize that our differences should be celebrated, not condemned.

While by no means all-inclusive of all the feel-good movies available during the holidays, these films are each a good place to start. Whatever your viewing pleasure, may the holidays bring you the spiritual peace and happiness you deserve.

Wishing you peace, love, happiness, and serenity this Christmas season.

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie
