Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone! After two entries with information, but no quotes, today’s post will be all quotes. I’ve chosen some of my favorites from the QuoteLady.com Website. You can find these and many more on the Christmas quotes page. You can also find the two weeks’ worth I did for this season at Yahoo Groups.

So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite Christmas quotes.

To release the prisoner–To rebuild the nations–
To bring peace among brothers and sisters–
To make music in the heart.–Howard Thurman
