“He who does not hold Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree ~ Roy L. Smith

Capture+_2017-12-22-10-27-12.pngIt is snowing here in our part of the island and the soft white flakes have made for a magical Christmas eve…

The glow of Christmas lights through the snow is breathtaking. The way it muffles what little noise there is even more so. It’s as if someone softly draped a white blanket over the town, in readiness for Santa.

Wherever you are and however you celebrate, I wish you the best of Christmas! 🙏 Tis a better world for your presence in it.

”      Are you willing to stoop down & consider the needs and desires of little children; to remember the weaknesses and lonliness of people who are growing old; to stop asking how much your friends love you, and to ask yourself if you love them enough; to bear in mind the things that other people have to bear on their hearts; to trim your lamp so that it will give more light and less smoke, and to carry it in front so that your shadow will fall behind you; to make a grave for your ugly thougts and a garden for your kindly feelings, with the gate open? Are you willing to do these things for a day? Then you are ready to keep Christmas!

Henry Van Dyke
