Bring it On…..

As we begin to anticipate the holidays and start thinking about all that needs to be done the last thing we need is to be sick – or is it?  If you’ve ever been ill during the holidays you know it’s no fun. So I figured that the least I could do is warn you about the Advent  Flu . Warnings first appeared in 1997 in a widely circulated E-mail. It is being reported that a new strain has developed and is spreading with a vengeance.

Friends, be on alert for symptoms of inner HOPE, PEACE, JOY and LOVE.

The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world

By now I’ve probably got your attention and you’re wondering about the signs and symptoms of The Advent  Flu:

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
A loss of interest in judging other people.
A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
A loss of interest in conflict.
A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
Contented feelings of contentedness with others and nature.
Frequent attacks of smiling.
An increasing tendency to let things happen.
An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

Embrace the Advent  Flu.  What’s the worst thing that can happen – you’ll be sick with happiness, joy and love for Christmas. I say: Bring it On…..

    Oh!!!! Ed, we need to talk. I’ve already been experiencing symtoms of “Advent Flu”. I hear it’s highly contagious. I guess I’m gonna be sick as well as others around me with Joy and Live. It’s just too much for me to fight!
