.. let every day be Christmas ..

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Norman Wesley Brooks

We need to give each other the space to grow,
to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity.
We need to give each other space so that
we may both give and receive such beautiful things
as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
