Christmas Every Day

The outward symbols disappear
From him whose inward sight is clear;
And small must be the choice of days
To him who fills them all with praise!

Keep while you need it, brothers mine,
With honest seal your Christmas sign,
But judge not him who every morn

Feels in his heart the Lord Christ born!
– John Greenleaf Whittier

The neighbors graciously let me snap this picture of their deflated Santa. – Karen Molenaar Terrell

Wouldn’t it be cool if everybody woke up EVERY day expecting a day full of magic and wonder and gifts? Wouldn’t it be cool if we all walked through every day with a feeling of happy anticipation – looking for the beautiful and good and true in every moment? Wouldn’t it be cool if everybody celebrated Christmassy love and peace all year? You wanna join me in a year-round Christmas this year?
