A gift for you...

During this busy time of year, I wanted to give you each a special gift…


Since I can’t drop in to each of your homes, I thought I’d share some special quotes of Christmas and the beautiful Spirit that accompanies this wonderful time of year.

My hope for you is that you will sneak in a little time to sit and relax and to soak in the wonder of Christmas; that life will not be so busy that you will breeze past all that is lovely and peaceful. It is so easy to do as we prepare for all the festivities of this season…pamper yourself a little…grab a cup of cocoa, a nice soft blanket and wrap yourself up in the wonder of all that is to come ~ you deserve it!!!

Wishing you a beautiful Christmas full of all that makes your heart smile!

Love, Stacey

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness." Bob Hope

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."

“It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart.” Marjorie Holmes

“Were I a philosopher, I should write a philosophy of toys, showing that nothing else in life need to be taken seriously, and that Christmas Day in the company of children is one of the few occasions on which men become entirely alive." Robert Lynd

“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace." Agnes M. Pahro

“And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans--and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused--and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.” Sigrid Undset

“If you desire to find the true spirit of Christmas and partake of the sweetness of it, let me make this suggestion to you. During the hurry of the festive occasion of this Christmas season, find time to turn your heart to God. Perhaps in the quiet hours, and in a quiet place, and on your knees—alone or with loved ones—give thanks for the good things that have come to you, and ask that His Spirit might dwell in you as you earnestly strive to serve Him and keep His commandments. He will take you by the hand and His promises will be kept.” Howard W. Hunter

…I realized that tradition is priceless, whether you have a small family, a large family, or no family. Tradition doesn't have to be logical; it only has to emphasize the light of Christ and his everlasting love.”
