Christmas is not a time or a season but a state of mind. To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world. ~Calvin Coolidge, Presidential message December25, 1927


"It might be easy to run away to a monastery, away from the commercialization, the hectic hustle, the demanding family responsibilities of Christmas-time. Then we would have a holy Christmas. But we would forget the lesson of the Incarnation, of the enfleshing of God—the lesson that we who are followers of Jesus do not run from the secular; rather we try to transform it. It is our mission to make holy the secular aspects of Christmas just as the early Christians baptized the Christmas tree. And we do this by being holy people—kind, patient, generous, loving, laughing people—no matter how maddening is the Christmas rush…"

I have one for you and your sister.......
At Christmas eve when the clock strikes 8
Our stockings hang so thin and straight,
One by the bed rail long and brown,
One by the chimney where Santa comes down.....
On Christmas morning when the skys all grey.
Our stockings hang in a different way...for now they are bulging fat and full with Dollys and Engines and Crackers to pull
Have a fabulous magical time
Love Lynn xx
