My highest and my best!

Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

Merry Christmas Quotes

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.

Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart. -- George Matthew Adams

At Christmas, A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season's here;
Then he's thinking more of others than he's thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime. -- Edgar Guest

Christmas--that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia.

The Church does not superstitiously observe days, merely as days, but as memorials of important facts.

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. And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing, Returns to you glad. -- John Greenleaf Whittier
