We seem to have lost the spirit of Christmas
amid the scandal and sadness this year.
So many things have happened in the world
itís hard to be filled with good cheer.

We grumble and groan and complain, itís true
treat each other with indignity and scorn
We see the world with eyes tightly shut
never seeing that gift that was born.

A gift that can lighten a stressful load
or clear prejudice from our eyes
a gift that we have the power to give
it comes in every shape and size.

Please pass on this gift - just give it away
but hold some of it close in your heart.
For we are together but a brief time in life
give it away before we must part.

On Christmas this year, I wish for you
the special gift we can use each day
Itís the gift of love - of hope - of peace
that increases as you give it away.

Beautiful sentiment...imagine if everyone did just that?

I echo the warm comments already made.  We all need encouragement in this area.  Just wrote one on Christmas preparation, concerning this.  Many thanks!

This was very touching!
A great read!
