Lord, this is my prayer
Not only on Christmas Day
But until I see You face to face
May I live my life this way:
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.
It’s christmas time once more
let’s praise the king we adore
raise our hands, loudly sing
praise and honour to the King
It’s just a small, white envelope stuck among the branches of our Christmas tree. No name, no identification, no inscription. It has peeked through the branches of our tree for the past 10 years or so.
Once upon a time, there was a man who looked upon Christmas as a lot of humbug.
If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love, I’m just another decorator.
There is no time more fitting to say Thank You
and to wish you a Happy Holiday Season
and a New Year of health, happiness and prosperity.
Christmas reminds us we are not alone. We are not unrelated atoms, bouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part of something, which holds and sustains us.
The merry family gatherings –
The old, the very young;
The strangely lovely way they
Harmonize in carols sung.
