One Christmas William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, wanted to
send a message of encouragement to Salvationists throughout the world.
A lengthy message was prohibitive, so he
chose a message of but one word: Others!
Walter B Knight
Christmas Greetings |
Christmas is a time of giving, and a time to share, all the love you harbor close.
Julie Hebert, What Christmas Means To Me
This is a time to give thanks for loved ones, and look back on the past year. We come together - in places of worship, around the table, or under the tree - to celebrate the spirit of the season.
Justin Trudeau, Christmas message for 2017
Appreciation Poems |
Look outside at night, and you might still see the twinkling of Christmas lights. Let them remind you today that on your street, in your circles, in your life, your opportunities to shine Godís light into the darkness are countless, and the needs are desperate. Yet no darkness is so dark that it canít be broken by Christ.
Christine Caine, Unshakeable
Quote of the Day |
And, yet, it is Jesus Christ's generous love and example which has inspired me through good times and bad. Whatever your own experience is this year, wherever and however you are watching, I wish you a peaceful and very happy Christmas.
Queen Elizabeth II, Christmas message for 2017
Words of Faith |
Every year I am reminded of the very heart of Christmas -- Emanuel,
God with us. God wants to be involved in the simple, ordinary happenings
of daily life: where we go
and what we do, the smile we give the harried stranger and the
patience we wear in the crowd of impatient shoppers, the love that
prompts the secret gift and the
heart that constantly celebrates His birth through every sparkling light,
every beautifully wrapped gift, each special meal, every card, phone call
Mary Southerland, The Heart of Christmas
I truly believe that if we keep telling the Christmas story, singing the
Christmas songs, and living the Christmas spirit, we can bring joy
and happiness and peace to this world.
Norman Vincent Peale
Motivational Poems |
Sometimes people give gifts out of obligation at Christmas, for anniversaries and birthdays, or on other special occasions.
At the same time, many people enjoy giving gifts because it demonstrates their love. This is the preferred way to give gifts - out of love.
Dr. David Jeremiah
Kindness Quotes |
For all of life is Christmas, an eternal gift from God.
God's Grace Quotes
The Christmas story is not another beautiful legend in the world's gallery
of myths, but is sober and solid reality; its story is history. Our religion is truth,
and we will worship at no other altar.
James H. Snowden, A Wonderful Night; An Interpretation Of Christmas
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 NLT
Christmas is the birthday of one whose chief contribution to the human heart
and mind was his message of boundless, universal love, He brought
to the world the greatest thing in the world and that is why the season
of his birth has won such an intimate place in our hearts.
Henry Van Dyke, The Spirit of Christmas
Inspirational Quotes |
Driving around my neighborhood,
I see so many Christmas lights.
It gets me in the holiday mood,
with so many beautiful sights.
Not only at Christmas but throughout the year
we all need to stop and count our blessings.
So every year when Christmas comes,
I realize a new, the best gift life can offer is having friends like you.
Helen Stiener Rice
Christmas is more that a time of festivities, family, and friends;
it is a season of generosity, gladness, and gratitude.
William Arthur Ward
The word advent means "to come," and it refers to Jesus' coming to earth
as a baby on Christmas Day. The season of Advent is all about looking
forward to celebrating
the day when our almighty God stepped into history as a human being.
Lisa Whelchel, The Adventure of Christmas: Helping Children Find Jesus in Our Holiday Traditions
Encouraging Bible Verses |
Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day
spent in the warm circle of family and friends.
"Let us then show our good will toward men by doing good and bringing
happiness to someone--if not to everyone--at this Christmas season.
Put aside the memories of disappointments, of sorrows that have not
vanished, of cares that still burden, and do good in spite of them because
you would not dim the brightness of the present for any human heart with
the shadows of old regrets. Do good because of a future which
opens possibilities before you, for others, if not for yourselves."
Cyrus Townsend Brady, A Little Book for Christmas
Helping Others |
Christmas -- how many images the word calls up: we think of carol-singers
and holly-decked churches where people hymn in time-honoured strains the
Birth of the Divine Child; of frost and snow, and, in contrast, of warm hearths
and homes bright with light and colour, very fortresses against
the cold; of feasting and revelry, of greetings and gifts exchanged;
and lastly of vaguely superstitious customs, relics of long ago, performed
perhaps out of respect for use and wont, or merely in jest, or
with a deliberate attempt to throw ourselves back into the past, to re-enter for
a moment the mental childhood of the race. . . .Yet even these
will suggest what hardly needs saying, that Christmas is something far
more complex than a Church holy-day alone, that the celebration of the
Birth of Jesus, deep and touching as is its appeal to those who hold the
faith of the Incarnation, is but one of many elements that have entered
into the great winter festival.
Clement A. Miles
Words of Encouragement |
May we have
the opportunity this Christmas to share the story of
Jesus' birth and the reasons for our hope in Him.
Christmas was very special that year.
It didn't matter if there were gifts or not under the tree the next morning.
Christmas Brings Memories Flooding Back |
If you've been feeling a little down, a little anxious, a little fatigued, a little
worried this Christmas season, come home to God.
He's the one who made you, who created you, who's
watched every moment of your life, who knows everything about you
and still loves you,
who forgives you and says, 'Come home to my peace and strength.'
People need it to be Christmas every day, and every day they pray for a miracle.
James Fullerton, Choose Happiness
Christmas is the day that holds time together.
New Beginnings |
Christmas is like candy; it slowly melts in your mouth sweetening
every taste bud, making you wish it could last forever.
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway
From the palace to the hut, Yule-tide is a season of peace, rest, joy,
and devotion. For three days, that is the day before Christmas, Christmas,
and the day after--known as Boxing-day--all business not
absolutely necessary to the welfare of the community is suspended.
Mary P. Pringle, Yule-tide In Many Lands
Christmas and its equivalent celebrations in all faiths are funny times. Every
human emotion, joy, sadness or laughter. Is contained within this period.
Shaun Dickinson, Christmas Poems
We miss the spirit of Christmas if we consider the Incarnation as an
indistinct and doubtful, far-off event unrelated to our present problems.
We miss the purpose of Christ's birth if we do not accept it as a living link
which joins us together in spirit as children of the ever-living and true
God. In love alone - the love of God and the love of man - will be found the
solution of all the ills which afflict the world today. Slowly, sometimes painfully,
but always with increasing purpose, emerges the great message of christianity
: only with wisdom comes joy, and with greatness comes love.
Harry S. Truman
For Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, and Joseph these announcements
were mind-boggling. For us they are brief parts of the Christmas Story,
but for them they were words that changed the course of their lives.
Melanie Wilber, Faith Hope and Love
What I'm talking about is Operation Christmas Child. Every year,
children around the world receive gifts because of the generosity
of believers packaging and sending them a gift for Christmas. It is likely
that is the only present they will receive all year.
Alex Bricker, Insight: Understanding Your Motivational Gifts
Jesus is still being ignored, or even worse, held in contempt categorized
to Christmas and Easter.
Aaron Mamuyac, 30 Prayers with the Names of Jesus
Giving your presence might be the best Christmas gift you could give
someone this year.
Ken Fite, The Dash: Lessons in Life, Faith, and Purpose
Christmas is God lighting a candle; and you don't light a candle
in a room that's already full of sunlight. You light a candle in a room that's
so murky that the candle, when lit, reveals just how bad things really are.
N.T. Wright, For All God's Worth: True Worship and the Calling of the Church
Inspirational Poems |
When you embrace forgiveness, gratitude, acceptance and ultimately
love you are at peace and the world is at peace Ė this is the ultimate goal
of the teachings of
Christ and the celebrations of Christmas which rekindle the joy
of the birth of new beginnings!
Bernadette Dimitrov, The HoHOHo Factor - New Christmas Insights, Inspiration, Symbols, fun traditions & more!
I'm not much of a fan of winter, for example, but that doesn't mean that
it doesn't have its good parts - like Christmas, Santa, snow,
hot chocolate and more. What seasons can teach us about change
is that change will come and go.
Vishnu, Seven Sacred Promises
Is Christmas coming? Having a tree in the office is well and good,
but go ahead and institute a Reindeer Day, where all employees
must come dressed in Reindeer Hats or wear those Red-Noses.
It will keep the atmosphere light and fun and everyone will want to
work for you, giving you their best.
Justin Chua, 7 Baby Lessons For GIANT Breakthroughs in Love, Life and Entrepreneurship
I thought Christmas and Easter were about Santa Claus and bunny rabbits,
and truthfully, I didn't know anything about Jesus until I was in my 20's.
DavidPaul Doyle, Candace Doyle, The Voice for Love: Accessing
Your Inner Voice To Fulfill Your Life's Purpose
My family has a Christmas tradition of watching, "It's A Wonderful Life".
Lisa Cook, 30 Days of Strength for a Woman's Heart
Only those who have actually been through it can understand the complete
sense of worthlessness and hopelessness you feel when Christmas is right
around the corner and you have nothing to give to your children.
Willow Cross, Getting Over It
. . . instead of receiving birthday or Christmas gifs from those you love,
ask them to put the money they would usually spend on gifts for you
into a fund hat you will use for the new house. This keeps things easy and
can even solve the Christmas shopping problem.
Nancy Ross, Tiny Houses: A Beginners Guide To Tiny House Living
Christmas and music go together.
Ray Pritchard, Joy to the World!
If it weren't for God's generosity, we would have nothing. The air we breathe
is a gift of God's generosity. The blood coursing through our veins is a gift
of Godís generosity.
The fact that our hearts are beating is a gift of God's generosity. Every
good thing in your life - including your life itself - is a gift of God's generosity.
But God's greatest act of generosity came on the very first Christmas
when he gave us Jesus.
But Christmas is not only the mile-mark of another year, moving
us to thoughts of self-examination: it is a season, from all its associations,
whether domestic or religious, suggesting thoughts of joy.
Robert Louis Stevenson
New Year Wishes |
Night would no longer be dark because of a new Light. Night would
not ever be silent again because of good news that must be shouted
...Christ the Lord is born today...
Robert F. Morneau
The real Santa Clause lives within the spirit of the human mind
embodied by the deeds that are done for no gain or recognition.
You do not need a Santa suit, or a beard, or be pot bellied.
For Those Who Do Not Believe
A Christmas without debt might be more magical than any other you've
experienced and will certainly bring a happier new year.
Cherie Lowe, Keep the Happy in Your Holidays
New Year Poem |
The battle, for some, is that Christ - the reason for the season - is being
removed from Christmas and the moral and spiritual consciousness
of society is in steep decline because of it.
Jason E. Royle, Jesus vs. Santa: Christmas Misunderstood
Christmas has always meant family and sharing, and showing love
and appreciation for those around you.
Morris Fenris, Christmas: Sara in Montana
It's time to slow down a little so we can enjoy Christmas and rediscover its
meaning. It wouldn't
hurt us to tap the brakes and relish the trip. By giving it some forethought,
we can bypass the
Christmas frenzy. We need time for reflection, for rest, for contemplation.
"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."
By virtue of the children's faith, the reindeer are still tramping the sky,
and Christmas Day is still something above and beyond a day of the week; it is a day out of the
Yes, Christmas is for children - except that children grow up to be adults
who just might love Christmas as much as they did in their younger years.
Cherie Lowe, Keep the Happy in Your Holidays
Remember, plan ahead, make your lists, designate where you can,
shop early, get prep out of the way and you've just rocked out
a terrific holiday!

Let us not forget that Christmas is truly a time for giving.
Not just for our friends and family but for those who are less fortunate.
That is the miracle of Christmas!
When I talk about Christmas and its celebrations, you will notice,
Christmas has never been one day but all month long. This is always
a sentimental time for me
from the times as far back as my memory can take me,
all the way past the present and into the future.
Robin Redmon Dreyer, Christmas Traditions, Legends, Recipes from Around the World
But surely that need not and ought not to be the whole of Christmas--only
a single day of generosity, ransomed from the dull servitude of a selfish year,-
-only a single night of merry-making,
celebrated in the slave-quarters of a selfish race! If every gift
is the token of a personal thought, a friendly feeling, an unselfish
interest in the joy of others, then the thought, the feeling, the
interest, may remain after the gift is made.
Henry Van Dyke, The Spirit of Christmas
Inspirational Thoughts |
Christmas is all about Good News. But it's not the good news of special gifts.
Itís not the good news of a big meal. It's not even the good news of spending
time with friends and family.
Christmas is about the Good News of God's love.
Rick Warren Quotes |
Keep one Christmas decoration out all year long. When you begin
packing away all of the Christmas decorations, keep one or two of
your favorite ornaments
out in plain sight as a reminder that we are to celebrate the
birth and life of Jesus Christ every day of the year.
All the Christmas presents in the world are worth nothing without
the presence of Christ.
Dr. David Jeremiah
The Christmas message has not changed after two
thousand years. Christmas still reminds us that God
is with us.
Inspirational Messages |
Sometimes it seems almost as if it is wrong to feel so glad and happy
when one knows there are so many of God's little ones friendless,
and even cold and hungry,
but if we are to let their misfortunes banish the gladness from
our heart they would not be any happier, so I am sure it is right to be
as happy as we can, and do whatever we may,
be it ever so little, to make those around us happy and look forward
forward hopefully to the beautiful time when Christmas shall bring to
everyone joy untouched with sorrow.
Quotes about Being Happy |
Tonight, on Christmas Eve, all men and women everywhere who love
Christmas are thinking of that ancient town and of the star of
faith that shone there more than nineteen centuries ago.
Franklin Roosevelt, December 24, 1943 address
Franklin Roosevelt Quotes |
Keeping Christmas is good, but sharing it is better.
The Hope that was born that night continues to
radiate down through the years until it envelops
your heart and mine.
