To yourself, respect EIGHT GIFTS THAT DO NOT COST A CENT: 1. The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition: The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind cheery word to someone. It's really not so hard to say, "Hello" or "Thank you." 2. The Gift of a Compliment: You can really brighten someone's day with a simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "That was a terrific dinner," or "You did a super job." 3. The Gift of Listening: To be a good listener you must REALLY listen. Let the other person speak with no interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response...just listening! 4. The Gift of Affection: Be generous with APPROPRIATE hugs, kisses, pats on the back, and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends. 5. The Gift of Laughter: Share your laughter and humour by clipping cartoons, jokes, articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you!" 6. The Gift of a Written Note: You can send someone a simple note that says, "Thanks for the help," or a poem, story, or any kind of upbeat message. The most brief, handwritten note can be remembered for a lifetime, and even change a life, you just never know. 7. The Gift of a Favour: Every day, go out of your way to do something kind for for someone else. There are plenty of opportunities for you to do something nice for a friend, relative, or co-worker on a daily basis. Show the love of Christ with your acts of kindness to others. Let them see Jesus in you. 8. The Gift of Solitude: There a times when we all want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others. Unknown source CHRISTMAS CREED. I believe in Jesus Christ and in the beauty of the gospel begun in Bethlehem. I believe in the one whose spirit glorified a little town; and whose spirit still brings music to persons all over the world, in towns both large and small. I believe in the one for whom the crowded inn could find no room, and I confess that my heart still sometimes wants to exclude Christ from my life today. I believe in the one who the rulers of the earth ignored and the proud could never understand; whose life was among common people, whose welcome came from persons of hungry hearts. I believe in the one who proclaimed the love of God to be invincible. I believe in the one whose cradle was a mother's arms, whose modest home in Nazareth had love for its only wealth, who looked at persons and made them see what God's love saw in them, who by love brought sinners back to purity, and lifted human weakness up to meet the strength of God. I confess my ever-lasting need of God: The need of forgiveness for our selfishness and greed, the need of new life for empty souls, the need of love for hearts grown cold. I believe in God who gives us the best of himself. I believe in Jesus, the son of the living God, born in Bethlehem this night, for me and for the world. Anonymous
