Chapter 11, Paagae 30, Book 19

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.  To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas

Calvin Coolidge

November 30th - Christmas on my mind.

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 the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years. Underneath all the bulging bundles of this beating beating Christmas heart.

George Matthew Adams

My hope is that now you that you have experienced 30 days of ideas on the attitude of gratitude, that You will be a more grateful person, which should help you to enjoy Christmas even more,  Gratefulness produces lots of positive thoughts that make you happy and we all want a MERRY CHRISTMAS this year

We are what we think about and thinking good thoughts brings about a lot of good things.  Tomorrow my thoughts will turn to the Most Wonderful time of Year.

Christmas is not a date.  It is a state of mind.

Amen- I,too, believe that Christmas's date is not a number on the calendar but a state of the heart. xo Diana

I believe that too - I have never been a big Santa and Christmas decorator for Christmas sake - I have always wondered why if it is Jesus's birthday why do we give presents to others?? Jesus is the reason for the season and we should feel in his heart.
