The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each
others' burdens, easing other's loads and supplanting
empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for
us the magic of Christmas.
-- W. C. Jones

the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!

It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away.

Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.

We hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago,
And etched on vacant places. Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.

("Christmas Fancies" Poems of Power)
I have always thought of Christmas time as a good time;
a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time;

a wide open heart that thinks of others first.

because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love
which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years...
Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
-- George Mathhew Adams
And so, this Christmas season
may our hearts with gladness glow,
As we read the blessed story
That took place so long ago.

Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing:
Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.
-- Grace Noll Crowell
Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer,
but always it will be a day of remembrance,
a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.
