Christmas Quotes

So it's not a story today, just some points to ponder. My favorite is the last by Ben Franklin. Enjoy!

What are we to of make of
Jesus Christ? . . .
The real question is not what
we are to make of Christ,
but what is He to make of us?

God's gifts
put man's best dreams
to shame.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Somehow, not only for Christmas,
but all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
-John Greenleaf Whittier

Where there is faith, there is love;
Where there is love, there is peace;
Where there is peace, there is God;
And where there is God; there is no need.
-Leo Tolstoy

The flow of blessings in our life
is directly related to our passing
blessings along to someone else.
-Thomas Kinkaid

Blessed is
The season which
Engages the whole
World in a
Conspiracy of love.
-Hamilton Wright Mabie

How many observe
Christ’s birthday!
How few, his precepts!
O! ‘tis easier to keep
Holidays than
-Benjamin Franklin
