Chapter 12, Page 18, Book 19



Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are things we cant see. 

The Conductor, Polar Express


December18th - we walk by faith and not by sight


The best and most beatuful things in the world cannot be seen our even touched, they must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

The Christmas spirit is about believing not seeing   The Christmas season brings about all kinds of feelings of home,  for the future, gratitude for our blessings, joy in hearing our favorite songs, comfort while watching Christmas movies and even nostalgia associated with certain smells of Christmas.  For me the most over whelming feeling is love.  These feelings can not be seen, they are believed in but not seen.

From the smell of pumpkin spice to the taste of peppermint and hot chocolate, the season is in full swing with the glow of lights and decorations , Many people engage their belief in the Christmas spirit when they start to plan their traditional family dinner.  Others use words like Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas. Many donate food and clothing and give loose change in the red kettle when it crossest their path.  We see it but do not believe it exists.


Faith sees the invisible
Believes the unbelievable
and receives the impossible.

Corrie Ten Boom

Belief is not aways seeing what is right there in front of us.  And sometimes we do not believe in what we see. 

The Christmas Spirit is alive and well.  It may or may not be seen.  But its something we can believe in.



You will see it when you believe it.

Wayne Dyer

i agree that in order to see the truth that sometimes you need a new perspective. it really can make all the difference.

I do agree the Christmas Spirit is alive and well. It is heartwarming to read stories on social media about people helping others this Christmas season to make sure that their families have an enjoyable Christmastime. Now if that Christmas Spirit could live on past the actual Christmas Day!

I remember a movie - where is talked about the wind - you don't really see it - but you know it is there. That is belief.

In spite of what the media would tell us, I do believe the Christmas spirit is alive and well. Now, I think it behooves everyone to do our part and keep it going.
