Christmas Wishes

I just got a Christmas card from my husband’s niece. It is a Hallmark Card. I hope they will forgive me for quoting this. It is such a powerful message.

“A Christmas Wish for You …

Calm that renews … Compassion that Comforts … Respect that Honors … Hope that Shines … Joy that Celebrates … Grace that forgives … Love that Shares … and Peace that Lasts.”

Isn’t that beautiful? I love sending and receiving Christmas Cards. All the way into June I will ask … “Is there a Christmas Card in there for me?”  Silly, I know, but … their messages are uplifting anytime of year. Let’s see if I can find more to share.

“The gift of love. The gift of peace. The gift of happiness. May all these be yours at Christmas.”

“May You feel God’s presence in the candles that softly spread their glow at Christmas, and may you experience the wonder of His abiding love, as He guides you, through each day of the coming year. May God’s Blessings be with you. At Christmas and New Year!”

“As Christmas carols fill the air with joy and merriment, as the chime of church bell echoes all around, and prayers reach out to God, I wish you a joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

“Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love.”   Lucinda Franks

[little tree]   by e.e. cummings

little tree

little silent Christmas tree

you are so little

you are more like a flower

who found you in the green forest

and were you very sorry to come away?

see          i will comfort you

because you smell so sweetly

i will kiss your cool bark

and hug you safe and tight

just as your mother would,

only don’t be afraid

look          the spangles

that sleep all the year in a dark box

dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,

the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

put up your little arms

and i’ll give them all to you to hold

every finger shall have its ring

and there won’t be a single place dark or unhappy

then when you’re quite dressed

you’ll stand in the window for everyone to see

and how they’ll stare!

oh but you’ll be very proud

and my little sister and i will take hands

and looking up at our beautiful tree

we’ll dance and sing

“Noel Noel”

There’s More to Christmas…
Author Unknown

There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than candlelight and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding,
For goodwill to men!
