Since like most of you, my day is really full, this will be a short blog just to wish you one and all a Merry Christmas from the V-bloggers and to share a quote I particularly like.
"Of all times, it is Christmas when we must surey realize that there can be no true worship of Him who is the Christ without giving of ourselves. At this season let us, each one, reach out a little more generously in the Spirit of the Christ. It is not enough to give toys and baubles. It is not enough to give alms to those in need. That is important, yes. But it is also important that we give of ourselves with our alms. May the real meaning of Christmas distill into our hearts, that we may realize that our lives, given us by God our Father, are really not our own, but are to be used in the service of others." ---Gordon B. Hinckley
May you find peace and joy in contemplating the birth of our Lord.
