mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust.
Write a letter. Give a soft answer.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge.
Forgive an enemy. Apologize.
Try to understand.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else. Be kind.
Be gentle. Laugh a little more.
Express your gratitude.
Welcome a stranger.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty
and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love and
then speak it again.”
~ Howard W Hunter more
“May your light rest in our hearts,
And remind us that you are the eternal star.”
“Let us dream of a world without any more violence –
A world of justice and hope.
Let us each give a hand to our neighbor…
As a symbol of peace and brotherhood.”
“Give us strength.
Fill us with love that we might love and be loved.
Let this be our prayer.”
~ Carol Bayer Sager and David Foster
“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,
everything is softer and more beautiful.”
~ Norman Vincent Peale
“Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.”
~ Oren Arnold
“My idea of Christmas,
whether old-fashioned or modern,
is very simple: loving others.
Come to think of it,
why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
~ Bob Hope more
“Christmas, my child, is love in action.
Every time we love, every time we give,
~ Dale Evans
” ‘Twas Christmas in the trenches where the frost, so bitter hung
The frozen fields of France were warmed as songs of peace were sung
For the walls they’d kept between us to exact the work of war
Had been crumbled and were gone forevermore.”
~ John McCutcheon, Christmas in the Trenches
