Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write I love you
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Crowded street, busy feet, hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won’t pass him by
Should you stop? Better not, much too busy
You’re in a hurry, my how time does fly
In the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries
(Willie Nelson and Roy Orbison)
May this day bring you peace, tranquility and harmony.
Today I will smile.
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.
If God should desire to raise us to the position of one who is an intimate and shares His secrets, we ought to accept this gladly. – St. Teresa of Avila
Have no fear for what tomorrow may bring, the same loving God who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. He will either shield you from suffering or give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations. – St. Francis de Sales
