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

Here I am Christmas Eve with my daughter and our little Xfactor

Christmas Thoughts 

It’s sharing your gifts, not purchasing gifts;
It’s not wrapping presents, its being present and wrapping your arms around the ones you love;
It’s not getting Christmas cards out on time,
It’s sending any card, anytime, at the right time;
It’s not having the biggest and best Christmas light display,
It’s displaying the Christ light that comes from your heart;
It’s not Santa coming down the chimney,
It’s Jesus coming down from heaven, and giving us the gift of eternal life.

3rd Day of Christmas, December 27th.

One of the greatest gifts we can give each other is a smile.  Smiles say we care.  Smiles gladden a sad heart.  Smiles are free and don't cost a cent.  Share the gifts you have with each other.  They mean more than any gift you can purchase.  

Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind; Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.

I like that thought by Helen Steiner Rice to teach us to be patient and always to be kind. That would solve a lot of our "world problems" if people just did that!
