What is it about Christmas, that brings out the compassion in all of us, a desire to give and some how bless the lives of others? Our thoughts seem to be filled with love for family and to others as we seek for ways to show that we care. A wise man, relatively unknown in the world, penned these words many years ago:
“This Christmas, mend a quarrel.
-Seek out a forgotten friend.
-Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust.
-Write a letter.
-Give a soft answer.
-Encourage youth. -Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
-Keep a promise.
-Forgo a grudge.
-Forgive an enemy.
-Try to understand.
-Examine your demands on others.
-Think first of someone else.
-Laugh a little more.
-Express your gratitude.
-Welcome a stranger.
-Gladden the heart of a child.
-Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
-Speak your love and then speak it again.”
Merry Christmas to each of you, our CPF family, from all of your friends at Capital Premium.
