put man's best dreams
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How many observe
How few, his precepts!
O! 'tis easier to keep
Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love,
a time when the love of God and love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and
bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives
manifest the presence of God.
-George F. McDougall
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
Somehow, not only for Christmas,
but all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
-John Greenleaf Whittier
God sent a star to light the night for
The Way, The Truth, The Life--His Son.
He sent the Light of Life to prove His heart
so we would invite His Son into our own.
God has given us all the light we'll ever
need to find peace on earth,
goodwill to men.
PEACE IS . . .
~ gazing at the stars with the knowledge
that you know their Creator.
~ closing your eyes in sleep without fear
~ the stillness in your heart when trouble swirls
~ a quiet mind in a raging world.
Where there is faith, there is love;
Where there is love, there is peace;
Where there is peace, there is God;
And where there is God; there is no need.
The flow of
blessings in our
life is directly
to someone else.
The giving of gifts is not something man invented. God started the giving spree when he gave a gift beyond words, the unspeakable gift of His Son.
- Robert Flatt
The season which
Engages the whole
World in a
Conspiracy of love.
-Hamilton Wright Mabie
