I can think of no better words to describe Christmas, than the following thoughts from George McDougall:
Best of all, Christmas means a spirit of love,
a time when the love of God and love of our fellow men should prevail over all hatred and
bitterness, a time when our thoughts and deeds and the spirit of our lives
manifest the presence of God.
Hope your preparation for the birth of Jesus is filled with love, forgiveness and grace.
Living in Grace
