Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
~A Christmas Prayer by Robert Louis Stevenson
I am truly blessed by the good news of Christ, my loving husband and children who are gifts in itself. These things are all I want for Christmas and all year round...I ask no more or any less than that. May your Christmas be filled with the ultimate truth...Christ!
The best gift you will ever receive!
