Christmas is in the air here in the
mountains of my home.
You can feel it's wonderful Spirit just
flowing out of people's hearts and into
the atmosphere. The streets are full
of colorful decorations. The houses
are alive with twinkling lights.
The stores are full of beautiful music,
special gifts, and cheerful hearts.
Little children are lining up with eager
anticipation to meet Santa Claus and
sit on his lap. Adults are smiling and
laughing while they relive fond
Christmas memories of their own.
Love is everywhere and joy is
glowing from every face.
It is a time that puts the
"Life" in living.
I think that if you could package
and gift-wrap this wonderful
Spirit of Christmas
then you would have the most
glorious gift of all. Just think of it.
You would have a present full of wonder
and awe, peace and happiness, innocence
and faith, kindness and goodness,
helpfulness and charity, simplicity and
fun, light and delight, laughter and smiles,
fondness and family, love and joy,
glory and oneness with God.
It would be a present that didn't rust,
or break, or get thrown away.
It would be a gift that kept on giving
to us, to those around us, and to
the whole world.
It would be a gift that lasts
us all through this life and goes on
with us into the next.
Thankfully, you can give this gift.
You may not be able to wrap it or put it
under a tree, but you can give it from
your heart and share it from your soul.
You can let it flow freely from your
every thought, feeling, and action.
You can bless others with it at
Christmas time and all through the year.
Give the gift that lasts then.
Give the gift that keeps on giving.
Give the God given gift of Christmas love
and joy to yourself and the whole world.
