Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!
~Hamilton Wright Mabie
And, so, Christmas comes to bless us!
Comes to teach us how to find
The joy of giving happiness
And the joy of being kind.
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “There Will Always Be a Christmas” (1940s)
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love isn’t jealous.
It doesn’t sing its own praises.
It isn’t arrogant. 5 It isn’t rude.
It doesn’t think about itself.
It isn’t irritable.
It doesn’t keep track of wrongs.
6 It isn’t happy when injustice is done,
but it is happy with the truth.
7 Love never stops being patient,
never stops believing,
never stops hoping,
never gives up.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.
