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

January 2nd - The Ninth Day of Christmas

Keep your Christmas heart open all the year round. 

Jessica Archmint

To have a Christmas heart means that Christmas is not just a day or a season, but a condition of our hearts and minds. If we love our neighbor as ourselves; if in our riches we are poor in spirit and in our poverty we are rich in grace; if our charity does not boast in itself, but is kind; if each day dawns in opportunity and sets in achievement, however small; then every day is Christ’s day and Christmas is always near.

We are each of us angels with only one wing; and we can only fly by embracing one another 

There have been angels in my life,
While they haven't arrived with a blast of trumpets
Or a rustle of wings, I've known them just the same.

They performed their acts in human guise,
Sometimes borrowing the faces of family and friends,
Sometimes in the form of a stranger lending a hand.

You have known them, too,
When just the right word was needed,
When a tiny act of kindness made a great difference.

Or perhaps you heard a voice whispering in the night of sorrow,
The words not quite clear but the meaning unmistakable:
There is hope, There is hope.

May your angels watch over you
And always keep you safe
And whisper in your ear
To banish hate and fear.

I like the thought of angels all around helping us in various guises. It also reminds us to reach out to help others.



I believe in ANGELS with all my heart. This post really spoke to me.
