Thoughts on Christmas
I thought I would share some of the quotes I found about Christmas. I hope they bless you.
"The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart."
"Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give,
"Born in a stable,
Cradled in a manger,
In the world His hands have made
Born a stranger."
"Take Christ out of Christmas, and December becomes the bleakest and most colorless month of the year."
"You can never really enjoy Christmas until you can look up into the Father's face
and tell Him you have received His Christmas gift."
John R. Rice
"The hinge of history is on the door of a Bethlehem stable."
Ralph W. Sockman
"The very purpose of Christ's coming into the world was that He might offer up His life as a sacrifice for the sins of men. He came to die. This is the heart of Christmas."
Rev. Billy Graham
"Christmas is telling time - wondering time. Wonder enough about it and you'll know
and you'll tell about it."
"I am not alone at all I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is the time God chooses."
"It is Christmas every time you let God love someone through you...yes it is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand."
"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 places of her heart."
"Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man."
"Thanks be to God for His unspeakable Gift.
precious beyond words."
