It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Dear Father,

It is Christmas time again. Help me this year to "season" the
celebration with "reason."

Teach me to plan with my family.
May I avoid the clutter that dims my vision and burdens my time.

Keep me mindful of my budget, and help me to remember
that a gift selected with love tugs for- ever at the heartstrings. Shame me for past extravagance.

Remind me to decorate in good taste,
treasuring all of the past blending it with the new,
but holding steadfast to "reason."

Keep me, Dear Father, from strain lest I stray from all thy
teachings. Guide me to the "light" of Christmas.
Help me keep a candle's flame of that "light"
as a constant reminder of my goal--eternity.

I pray for thy love and help,
in the name of thy beloved Son
whose birthday we are observing.


With loving thoughts and prayers for all of you,

'On Ya' - ma
