The Christmas Season is a great time to rid the heart of sadness and gloom. Have Hope in your heart. The Joy of Christmas can be found within your spirit of generosity. Generosity should be found in deed and spirit as a true celebration of Jesus. Any gift should be a token of the heart. Most gifts are soon broken, used and forgotten, but a loving, giving heart endures the tests of time. Make your holiday a holy day. Add another seat or two at your table. Set free whatever grudges or ill will you would hold on to. Sing carols at the top of your voice. Wrap every present in love. Celebrate the good in your life with those that you appreciate.
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. ~~ Calvin Coolidge ~
What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.
