Prayer this year is to invest in the child like wonder of Christmas.
Allow our adult worries to be paused while we celebrate the wonder of our Saviors Birh.
The children were charming. They absolutely refused to resemble their elders, notwithstanding the efforts of mothers and governesses. In a jiffy they had denuded the Christmas tree down to the very last sweet and had already succeeded in breaking half of their playthings before they even found out which belonged to whom.
Russian Christmas Quote from Christmas Tree and the Wedding by F.M. Dosoyevsky.
