Christmas: Jesus is the REASON for the SEASON!

Monday, December 05, 2011

It is not what we take up,
but what we give up,
that makes us rich.

--Henry Ward Beecher

Christ was content with a stable
When he was born
So that we could have
A mansion when we die.


Somehow not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more spend in blessing.
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing,
Returns to you glad.

--John Greenleaf Whittier

Heap on the wood!
The wind is chill,
But let it whistle
as it will,
We'll keep our
Christmas merry still.

--Sir Walter Scott

"I am come that they might have life,
And have it more abundantly."
--Jesus Christ
