Christmas will always be in the hearts of God's children everywhere as they extend a helping hand to a friend in need ... as they go about reflecting God's goodness in the little quiet and unheralded expressions of a loving heart ... as they share the light of the world with those who live in darkness .
The earth has grown old with its burden of care
But at Christmas it always is young,
The heart of the jewel burns lustrous and fair
And its soul full of music breaks the air,
When the song of angels is sung.
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew the wondrous gift, the Christ.
To celebrate the heart of Christmas is to forget ourselves in the service of others.
What's going on here is a redefinition of Christmas as a time of family celebration rather than as a time of the community faithful celebrating the birth of the savior...There is a risk that we will lose one more of our Christian rituals, one that's at the heart of our faith.
My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.
If you have much, give of your wealth; If you have little, give of your heart
Giving is more a dictate of the heart than a command of the brain.
You know that being an American is more than a matter of where your parents came from. It is a belief that all men are created free and equal and that everyone deserves an even break.
When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart
The great man is he who does not lose his child-heart. He does not think beforehand that his words shall be sincere, nor that his acts shall be resolute; he simply abides in the right.
Great tranquility of heart is his who cares for neither praise not blame.
Praise out of season, or tactlessly bestowed, can freeze the heart as much as blame.
Mothers Day is in honor of the best Mother who ever lived - the Mother of your heart
When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness; instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal.
Most things break, including hearts. The lessons of life amount not to wisdom, but to scar tissue and callus.
The heart and soul of blogging is the individual and/or the group of individuals opining on the fly and responding post-haste to one and all.
It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.
It is not flesh and blood but the heart, which makes us fathers and sons.
Take a second out to think about this: in your life you search and search for the right person for you. Every time you break up with someone you get one step closer to that person. You should look at moving on as getting closer to meeting the one.
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.
Pain is the question mark turned like a fishhook in the human heart.
Anger wishes that all mankind had only one neck; love, that it had only one heart; grief, two tear-glands; and pride, two bent knees.
