until you can look up into the Father's face and
tell him you have received his Christmas gift.

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world,
and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

Our Greatest Need
If our greatest need had been information,
God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.
But our greatest need was forgiveness,
so God sent us a Saviour.
A single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer.
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man
which cannot be filled by any created thing,
but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.
Because God is with you all the time,
no place is any closer to God
than the place where you are right now.
I used to ask God to help me.
Then I asked if I might help him.
I ended up by asking him to do his work through me.
Is not the absence of conflict
But the Presence of God
Contemplation is nothing else but a secret, peaceful, and loving infusion of God,
which, if admitted, will set the soul on fire with the Spirit of love.
John of the Cross
Prayer is the window that God has placed in the walls of our world.
Leave it shut and the world is a cold, dark house.
But throw back the curtains and see His light.
Open the window and hear His voice.
Open the window of prayer and invoke the presence of God in your world.
