Newsletter 35 – December 17, 2009

 

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,

and behold,

everything is softer and more beautiful.

~Norman Vincent Peale

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,

for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away

like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.

The good you do for others is good you do yourself…

~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976
