The Christmas Spirit


We waited all through the year
for the day to appear
when we could be together in harmony
- Bryan Adams

The True Spirit of Christmas
Christmas time is a magical time of the year, the holiday season, coming together with family & friends, the joy, peace, and love we all share. 

What is the "Christmas Spirit"? It can be summed up in 3 simple words -- Joy, Peace, & Love. But you can also describe it one word: "Jesus"  

Jesus = Joy, Peace, & Love = Spirit of Christmas

It's that time of year, it's the one night when we all act a little nicer, we smile a little easier, we share a little more. For a couple of hours we are the people we always hoped we would be.  It's really a miracle because it happens every Christmas Eve. Don't waste that miracle.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness" - Galatians 5:22

Spread the Love, Joy, Peace
You have to do something. You have to take a chance and get involved. There are people that don't have enough to eat and who are cold. You can go and greet these people. Take an old blanket out to them or make a sandwich and say, "Here. "I get it now." And if you give, then it can happen, the miracle can happen to you. Not just the poor and hungry, Everybody's gotta have this miracle! It can happen tonight and today for you all!

But why do a lot of people only come to embrace this feeling of giving and love only once a year?

If you believe in this pure thing, the miracle will happen and you'll want it again tomorrow! You won't say, "Christmas is once a year." Because, it's not! It can happen every day!

You've just got to want that feeling.  You'll want it every day! It can happen to you.  I believe in it now. I believe it's gonna happen to me, now. I'm ready for it! And it's great. It's a good feeling. It's better than I've felt in a long time. I'm ready.

You Can Be The Change You Wish To See In This World

I encourage you to celebrate and live with the Christmas spirit not just for the holiday season, but each and every day. We can change the world if we embrace the spirit.

I know it's not too late
the world would be a better place
if we can keep the spirit more than one day in the year
send a message loud and clear
- Bryan Adams

Merry Christmas Everyone,
Spread the Spirit each and every day!
