Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas one and all.

Here are some quotes of what other people had to say:

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through! ~Author Unknown

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...
~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. Jesus Christ, bible MATTHEW 22:39
I like those quotes because peace on Earth is something I really would like to see happen. Lets all hope and pray for the highly improbable to happen; Peace on Earth for all. Praying and hoping are well and good, but rarely are they enough. Do something, anything to brighten the world and make the dream of peace on Earth a reality. Even a small kindness applied at the right moment can change a persons life.

Christmas is a day in which we celebrate Christ's birth. So celebrate it the way Jesus would have wanted us to and do something no matter how small to make the world a better place. What better way could there be to celebrate his birth than to follow his teachings of peace and love. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, believe in God, or view Jesus as being just a man, I ask that you do something to promote Peace.

If for some unfathomable reason you can't think of something here are a few suggestions:
Donate time or money to a worthy cause
Give someone a hug
Encourage someone
Say thank you to someone for an every day action you generally don't acknowledge
Call up someone you haven't talked to in a while

If you think about it I'm sure you can think of something.
