Whatever your belief, whatever your feelings, this is a time of celebration. Our children are our future and amazing energy beings that seem to enlighten us along our pathway. This is for children everywhere.
Vibrational Blessings, Debbie A. Anderson
At Christmas time I believe the things that children do:
I believe with English children
that holly placed in windows will protect our homes from evil.
I believe with Swiss children
that the touch of Edelweiss will charm a person with love.
I believe with Italian children
that La Befana is not an ugly doll but a good fairy who will gladden the heart of all.
I believe with Greek children
that coins concealed in freshly baked loaves of bread will bring good luck to anyone who finds them.
I believe with German children
that the sight of a Christmas tree will lessen hostility among adults.
I believe with French children
that lentils soaked and planted in a bowl will rekindle life in people who have lost hope.
I believe with Dutch children
that the horse Sleipner will fly through the sky and fill the earth with joy.
I believe with Swedish children
that Jultomte will come and deliver gifts to the poor as well as to the rich.
I believe with Finnish children
that parties held on St.Stephen's Day will erase sorrow.
I believe with Danish children
that the music of a band playing from a church tower will strengthen humankind.
I believe with Bulgarian children
that sparks from a Christmas log will create warmth in human souls.
I believe with American children
that the sending of Christmas cards will build friendships.
I believe with all children that there will be peace on earth.
