THE FOURTH CHRISTMAS SPIRIT (Part VI)

About an hour had passed since Ebenezer returned home and went to bed, so his body regained the physical strength he needed to continue enjoying Christmas Day. When he woke up, his spirit was overflowing with youth, and his eyes had the brightness of happiness and satisfaction produced by being honest and generous with other people. Standing in front of the mirror, Ebenezer spoke; joy expressed in his words. “I feel like a youngster, with all the desire to live my life and enjoy everything around me, but with wisdom. I must take care of my health, if I want to live many more years. Because the mirror reminds me that although my spirit became strong, vigorous and young, my body has deteriorated over time. But that will not be an impediment for my attitude to always be positive and cheerful.”

EL CUARTO ESPIRITU DE LA NAVIDAD (Parte V)

Ebenezer caminaba sin prisa.  No sabia que hora era, aunque podía discernir que ya pasaba del medio día.  No pensaba en cuanto tiempo había utilizado del día de Navidad porque no quería sentirse limitado o restringido por el tiempo, deseaba disfrutar al máximo ese día 25 de diciembre.  Ya había sido esclavo del tiempo y el trabajo por muchos años.  Ebenezer sabiamente se repetía a si mismo que los años venideros serian diferentes porque los viviría con gozo en su corazón y aunque no sabía cuántos años más le quedaban de vida, si sabia que los años por venir, los viviría plenamente, sin egoísmo, sin resentimiento, sin amargura en el alma y sin preocuparse demasiado por el futuro ya que los espíritus le habían enseñado que el futuro no nos pertenece y es incierto.

THE FOURTH SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS (Part V)

Ebenezer walked slowly. He didn’t know what time it was. Although he could discern that it was already past noon, he did not think about how much time He had used on Christmas Day because He did not want to feel limited or restricted by time, He wanted to enjoy that day December 25 to the fullest. He had already been a slave to time and work for many years. Ebenezer wisely repeated to himself that the coming years would be different because he would live them with joy in his heart and although he did not know how many more years he had left of life, he knew that in the years to come, he would live them fully, without selfishness, without resentment , without bitterness in the soul and without worrying too much about the future since the spirits had taught him that the future does not belong to us and is uncertain.

EL CUARTO ESPIRITU DE LA NAVIDAD (Parte IV)

Ebenezer caminaba en dirección hacia el parque donde el Espíritu de la navidad presente le había mostrado que Belle estaba jugando con sus hijos.  Y mientras caminaba sus pies se hundían en la nieve y su mente lo llevo al pasado cuando siendo un jovencito solía divertirse jugando con su hermana corriendo sobre la nieve.  Ebenezer caminaba con la cabeza agachada dejando que sus memorias llenaran su espíritu con el amor que sentía por Fan, su hermana menor que aun después de muerta seguía viva en su corazón.  Con su vista puesta sobre la nieve observo como los tenues rayos del sol reflejaban dos sombras caminando juntas, Ebenezer levanto la cabeza y miro hacia todos lados, pero no había nadie a su lado.  Sin embargo, la luz del sol seguía reflejando dos sombras sobre la nieve.  Entonces Ebenezer escucho nuevamente la risa de alguien, muy parecida a la risa de un niño.  Desconcertado, pero decidido pregunto con tono autoritario, “¿Quién está caminando junto a mí?  Y ¿Por qué no puedo verle?”

THE FOURTH SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS (Part IV)

Ebenezer was walking towards the park where the Spirit of Christmas present had shown him that Belle was playing with her children. And as he walked his feet sank in the snow and his mind took him to the past where, as a young boy, he used to have fun playing with his sister in the snow. Ebenezer walked with his head down, letting his memories fill his spirit with the love he felt for Fan, his younger sister, who was still alive in his heart even after her death. With his eyes on the snow he watched the faint rays of the sun reflect two shadows walking together, Ebenezer raised his head and looked everywhere, but there was no one at his side. However, sunlight still reflected two shadows on the snow. Then Ebenezer heard someone’s laugh again, much like a child’s laugh. Bewildered, but determined he asked authoritatively, “Who is walking next to me? And why can’t I see you?”

EL CUARTO ESPIRITU DE LA NAVIDAD (Parte III)

  Mientras caminaba Ebenezer mantenía vivas las imágenes del hombre y su familia debajo del puente, tal como el espíritu de la Navidad Presente se lo había mostrado la noche anterior.  Y cuando llego al puente lo pudo reconocer inmediatamente; sin dudar ni un instante comenzó a descender por el inclinado camino en busca de ese hombre.  Cuando Ebenezer estuvo debajo del puente se encontró con escenas terribles que fácilmente podían llegar al corazón de una persona sensible al dolor humano y pensó,

THE FOURTH SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS (Part III)

While walking Ebenezer, kept the images of the man and his family under the bridge in his head, just as the spirit of Christmas Present had shown him the night before. When he reached the bridge, he could recognize it immediately; without hesitation, he began to descend the steep path in search of that man. As Ebenezer was under the bridge, he encountered terrible sights that could easily reach the heart of any sensitive person to human pain and thought,

EL CUARTO ESPIRITU DE LA NAVIDAD (Parte II)

Ebenezer elaboro una lista mentalmente de las visitas que realizaría y mientras caminaba por la calle se encontró con tres señores que unos días antes le habían pedido una donación para los asilos del pueblo que protegían a los desamparados, ancianos y huérfanos durante todo el año.  Los tres hombres al encontrarse de frente con Ebenezer lo ignoraron y siguieron caminando.  Entonces Ebenezer se Volteó y levantando su mano derecha les grito, “Señores, podría conversar con ustedes un momento”.  Los tres hombres se detuvieron y mirándose a los ojos entre ellos mismos afirmaron moviendo la cabeza, que si podían conversar un momento.

THE FOURTH SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS (Part II)

Ebenezer made a mental list of the visits he would make and while walking down the street, he met three men who a few days earlier had asked for a donation for the shelters of the town that protected the homeless, the elderly and orphans throughout the year. The three men, facing Ebenezer, ignored him and continued walking. Then Ebenezer turned around, raising his right hand, shouted at them, “Gentlemen, I would like to talk with you for a moment.” The three men stopped and looking into each other’s eyes, nodding their heads as to say okay.
