Here are a few quotes that I just stumbled upon in my stack of mail. I want to remember them for next year. I am actually glad that I can share them with you now, since I wouldn’t want to sound too preachy before the holidays. I love that we celebrate – no matter how, when or where! Celebration of life and living it to the fullest is what is important to me.
“It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty founder was a child himself.” — Charles Dickens
“The way to Christmas lies through an ancient gate. . . It is a little gate, child-high, child-wide, and there is a password: “Peace on earth to men of good will.” May you, this Christmas, become as a little child again and enter into His Kingdom.” — Angelo Patri
“Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.” — Handel Brown
My challenge will be always to prepare for the experience.
