Christmas by John Wallingford

Christmas is not a day or a season, but a
condition of heart and mind.

If we love our neighbors as ourselves;
if in our riches we are poor in spirit and in
poverty we are rich in grace;

If our charity vaunteth not itself, but suffereth long and is kind;
if when our brother asks for a loaf, we give
ourselves instead;

If each day dawns in opportunity and sets in
achievement, however small;
then every day is Christ’s day and Christmas
is always near.

—John Wallingford
