Special Thoughts This Christmas

Smileys singing carols
Merry Xmas

Every time a hand reaches out
to help another….that is Christmas!

Old Person Helped to Walk

Every time someone puts anger aside
and strife for understanding…that is Christmas!

Angry dog

Every time people forget their differences
and realize their love for each other…that is Christmas!

Hug and slip

May this Christmas bring us
…closer to the spirit of human understanding,

Funny Strong Hand Shaking
…closer to the blessing of peace!

Joke of the day – Gift exchange

My friend reviewed her young son’s fill-in-the-blank homework.

One line: “At Christmas, we exchange gifts with _________.”

His response: “Receipts.”

May you find this Christmas inner peace

May you find this Christmas inner peace
Equal to the patient love you give,
Releasing all the pain you can release,
Renewing all the grace with which you live.
Yearnings may you turn to rhapsodies,

Choosing to find happiness in beauty,
Holding in their haunting melodies
Riches that sustain your sense of duty.
In anger may you find an evening star
Showing you the way to Bethlehem.
The angels that watch naked from afar
May you hear sing of who would none condemn.
As all you love are blessed in having you
So may you feel the joy in all you do.
