Have hope; believe in the birth of new ideas and experiences that shape your life and enrich your family.
Bring forth your generosity to serve others. Care for the poor. Give to the needy and to those you love from the bounty of your heart.
During Christmas, create harmony in your spirit, and in your home, workplace and community.
Remember to bring forth a profound love that abounds the whole year through.
In every family, Christmas traditions grow and small joys take on a special meaning. This year, celebrate and acknowledge with your family the sentiments of Christmas and discuss the values you treasure most.
Invite your friends and family to carry the spirit of this holiday into the New Year.
"The spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind," author Loring A. Schuler believes.
The great charm of this season is the spirit of warmth, generosity and good will that is always welcome everywhere.
May peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing throughout the year!
