May peace be your gift at Christmas
and your blessing all year through!
Christmas is not a time nor a season but state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Christmas waves a magic over this world, and behold,
everything is softer and more beautiful.
Christmas is not an eternal at all,
but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart.
Blessed is the season which engages
the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
May all the sweet magic of Christmas conspire
to gladden your hearts and fill every desire.
Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind;
Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients
of a truly Merry Christmas
This moment, this day, this season, will never come again.
Treasure it, and treasure your children,
who make it special and memorable.
May this Christmas find you surrounded
by those you love and those who love you!
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day
of the year to remind us that we're here for something
else besides ourselves.
Christmas is not as about opening our presents
as opening our hearts.
