Christmas Wishes...

Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
~~~~~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby


May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
~Author Unknown


Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. 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. ~Augusta E. Rundel



We hear the beating of wings over Bethlehem and a light that is not of the sun or of the stars shines in the midnight sky. Let the beauty of the story take away all narrowness, all thought of formal creeds. Let it be remembered as a story that has happened again and again, to men of many different races, that has been expressed through many religions, that has been called by many different names. Time and space and language lay no limitations upon human brotherhood. ~New York Times, 25 December 1937





And so it goes......

Bob,
Thank you, right back at cha!! Oh wait, I already said that... Happy New Year then.

Earl,
Thank you, too! Wishing you and your sweet wife the same.
Oh, without telling my age, I grew up listening to Elvis. I can even remember him being on the Ed Sullivan show and them blocking out him from the waist down. But we can see everything on the 'boob tube' nowadays. Sadly. Most of the Christmas songs on my playlist are the ones I remember. Hard as heck to find them all...
