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
Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.
Two little candles, blowing in the wind,
Laughing together, friend to friend,
Each one basking in the other's light,
Each one welcoming the warmth of night,
Each one swaying with nothing to hide,
Dancing together, side by side.
- Julie Redstone
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
I have shown you in every way by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.
- Bible - Acts 20:35
