    :tree: The Christmas Heart

    The Christmas heart is a beautiful heart for it is full of love and thoughtfulness for others.
    And the Christmastime is a tribute to the most beautiful heart that ever beat.
    It is also the time in which we are brought closest to our own inadequate abilities and helplessness of spirit. For we are so bathed with unselfishness that we feel our failures and lacks as never before in the entire year.
    Perhaps it is well this way, so that we may resolve anew to live better and stronger lives for those who mean so much to us.
    So let us cherish this Christmas heart and keep it a Christmas heart all through the year to come.
    Let us put on all the lights in this heart so that it will be aglow to the world and let us push up the shades of the windows in this heart so that everyone who passes may be cheered and inspired.
    Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide-open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years and given beauty to human service it would never have had otherwise.
    Underneath all the bulging bundles is the beating Christmas heart. Enwrapped about the tiniest gift is the same loveliness of thought and heart expression.
    What a happy New Year for all if we would carry this same Christmas heart into every day during the coming year and make it a permanent thing in our lives. Let's do it!
    - George Matthew Adams
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.
