As We Await Christmas Day!

This morning is the morning when everyone dashes to the stores to "buy" Christmas. Ah, but Christmas can't be bought. It must be celebrated in the heart, and it's overflowing joy freely given. The quiet forest, the gentle deer, the chill of daybreak, and the winter bird's song require no traffic jams or plastic money. If we want to learn how to give look around at nature! Perhaps, more than ever we will be returning to simple gifts that share our time this year. Time is priceless. Not one minute more can be bought with money. I stayed home from the mad rush. What about you?

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
