Christmas Blessings

God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
the all of Christmas, which is Christ.
~Wilda English

Take Christ out of Christmas, and December becomes the bleakest and most colorless month of the year.
~A. F. Wells

Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
~Guillaume Apollinaire

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty;
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
~Charles Dickens

It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart.
~Marjorie Holmes

The Christmas season reminds us that a demonstration of religion is always much better than a definition of it…especially in front of the kids.
