God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;

the warmth of Christmas, which is love;

the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;

the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;

the belief in Christmas, which is truth;

the all of Christmas, which is Christ!

 I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for the spreading of good cheer.  I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for exchanging gifts.  I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for enjoying those tasty “delectables” that we save especially for this time of the year. I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time for the very special magic that comes from celebrating the love that is family.  I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time when we, as members of an earthly family, whatever that means to each of us, are inexplicably tied to the miracle of the family of the Christ child.  I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time when, as we exchange our gifts with those we love, that we remember God’s greatest gift to human kind!  I BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time of LOVE! And  I BELIEVE that it is this Christmas LOVE that we carry forth and share with others throughout the year, that has the capacity to work its very own miracle on each and every heart, each and every single day, all year through! I BELIEVE!

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe 

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word 

Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe 

Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe

“And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”

Mark 4:26-29 NKJV
