The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing others loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas. The question is 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. Christmas ... is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart. There's more, much more, to Christmas Than candlelight and cheer; It's the spirit of sweet friendship That brightens all year. It's thoughtfulness and kindness, It's hope reborn again, For peace, for understanding, And for goodwill to men. Let us keep Christmas beautiful Without a thought of greed, That it might live forevermore To fill our every need, That it shall not be just a day, But last a lifetime through, The miracle of Christmastime That brings God close to you. So Here is my little prayer to my friends and their Families for being a wonderful Friend.
"May your heart and home be filled with the true spirit of Christmas. May God fill your life with love, joy and peace this Holiday Season and throughout the New Year. And may Jesus always be your joy, your hope, your song. And may this Christmas and each day of the new year be directed by His guiding hand of love.'' Amen
Wishing you all Merry Christmas And a Joyous New year.
