Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.
~Bess Streeter Aldrich

The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.
~Louisa May Alcott

Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost 2,000 years...underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
~George Matthew Adams
