While it's all very pretty, this season isn't really about the lights & the presents & the music & the gifts...well, it's about one gift. One amazing & powerful gift, the gift of love.
"That's when the Spirit of Christmas smiled.
'Remember, this all began with a child.
Because it took nothing but love to begin it,
it's not really Christmas if love isn't in it.
Your tree may be large as the room will allow
with a big yellow star on the uppermost bough,
but of one thing I'm certain,
I'm sure of one thing.
It is love that makes the angels sing.'"
I know I already posted an excerpt from this book, but it's my favorite this year, Nancy Tillman's The Spirit of Christmas.
I hope you know the real spirit of Christmas today & everyday.
I love you so,
