One of the most beloved stories that has made an wonderful impression upon me since I was a child is the novella by Charles Dickens, ‘A Christmas Carol’, first published in 1843.
He wrote about many incredible lessons and messages that have inspired us all. Some of these important words ring true to this day. I wanted to include a passage this Christmas Day, for you all.
~ Apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it! ~ Charles Dickens~ Enjoy wonderful moments together with your loved ones. We wish you Blessings this fine Christmas day... Love, Tommie and Paul
