With all the preparation that go into having a wonderful Christmas Day, I thought I would share a poem, a few quotes and a song for you to enjoy.

A Few Good Quotes
“Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” ~ Oren Arnold
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis
“It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!… Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! “Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!” ~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
May you have a wonderful Christmas.
As we enjoy all the trimmings, traditions, and time with family and friends – let’s remember to express our thankfulness to Jesus – who loves us so much – that He decided to leave His divinity behind to live life as we do – so He would understand us better and make His redemption plan even more valuable when you ponder the wonder of it all.
