Season of Advent


Christmas is more than a time of music, merriment and mirth;
it is a season of meditation, mangers and miracles.

Christmas is more than a time of gaiety, greenery and gifts;
it is a season of wonder, worship and wisemen.

Christmas is more than a time of tinsel, trees and toys;
it is a season of preparation, prayers and peace.

Christmas is more than a time of festivities, family and friends;
it is a season of generosity, gladness and gratitude.

Christmas is more than a time of carols, cards and candy;
it is a season of dedication, direction and decision.

Christmas is more than Santa, stocking and surprises;
it is Christ, care and concern.
~William Arthur Ward~

Blessings of joy and hope to each of you, as we enter this season of Advent.

Thank you, Mary, for sharing your sweet thoughts about the true meaning of Christmas with us. It is a blessing to read your words, echoing the sentiments of so many people in a world that often times forgets the real reason for celebrating Christmas.

God Bless You!
