*Be good for goodness sake!
*Ask people what they want and they’ll line up to speak with you.

Gift Giving
* Keep receipts or rue the day.
* One size does not fit all.
* Good things come to those who wait.
* Giving IS better than getting.
* Christmas shopping is best done out of season.
* If Christmas is only about the gifts, it will be empty.
* Have space in your garbage for all the packaging.

Birth of the Christ Child
* Dignity is not connected to wealth.
* If you don’t have reservations, trust in God.
* Angels celebrate good news with us.
* The Blessed Mother was there at the beginning and at the end.
* Look to the Heavens and God will lead you.
* Looks can be deceiving but faith is 20/20.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Merry Christmas Everyone!
