Day 29 - Christmas forever in my heart 


Christmas is not just a day, an event be observed and speedily forgotten.  It is a spirit which should permeate every part of our lives.

William Parks

Just as the evergreen tree is a symbol of perpetual life because they retain the leaves though out the season, rather than shedding, we should keep Christmas in our hearts forever, forever green.

Evergreen is something that doesn’t change color or something that is timeless.  Love is ageless and evergreen.  Love is like an evergreen tree. And Christmas is all about love.  Christmas should be in the heart of everything we do.

Evergreens are unbending against heavy winter snows and brutal winds  and remain ever bright and their likeness reminds me of the evergreen nature within the core of every human.  We too have the ability to stay strong in the midst of adverse conditions.  

We have the capacity to love in the coldest of times, keeping Christmas forever green.



I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.

Harlan Miller

Every day is Christmas day when we share our love with others.

So true that we can love no matter what is going on. Good to keep that thought in mind as we struggle sometimes through those cold times.

EVERGREEN. I love that thought. Sweet! Oh yes I think we would have a much happier world if we could follow that thought! SWEET.

Do you love that wonderful song from "A Star is Born", too? "Ageless and evergreen … everyday a beginning." (Oh heck, my eyes grow moist remembering.) I love how you've woven this message around one of my favorite-ever songs.

we should celebrate christmas everyday. "Evergreens are unbending against heavy winter snows and brutal winds. We too have the ability to stay strong in the midst of adverse conditions."
