HO HO HO
WORDS THAT BRING CHRISTMAS INTO THE HEARTS OF MANY



WITH COFFEE IN HAND I WATCHED THE MORNING SUN RISE AND BEGIN ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US. AS I SIPPED MY COFFEE I THOUGHT TO MYSELF HOW IMPORTANT WORDS ARE TO OUR DAY, AND ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. AS WE RUSH AROUND TRYING TO FILL THE TREE WITH WONDERFUL GIFTS, IT IS EASY TO FORGET THAT SO MANY ARE LONELY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. THERE ARE SO MANY AMAZING GROUPS OUT THERE OFFERING FOOD AND PRESENTS, BUT I ASK YOU TODAY TO CONSIDER THOSE WHO DO NOT ASK FOR HELP. THOSE THAT THE CHRISTMAS SEASON JUST MEANS LONELY. I KNOW YOU SAY WELL EVERYONE I KNOW SEEMS TO BE IN THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT, BUT HOW MANY SIT AT NIGHT ALONE AND WONDER IS LIFE WORTH IT?

SO FOR TODAY I ASK YOU PUT CHRISTMAS IN YOUR HEART. WAVE TO EVERYONE AND WISH THEM A MERRY CHRISTMAS. TAKE A MOMENT, AND WHEN YOU ASK THAT CASHIER HOW IS YOUR DAY GOING, REALLY STOP AND LISTEN TO THEIR ANSWER. ASK THEM WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY A LITTLE BETTER? TAKE CHRISTMAS OUT OF THE DEPARTMENT STORE AND PUT IT BACK WHERE IT BELONGS, BACK IN THE HEART OF MAN.

LONG, LONG AGO, SOMEONE WAS THE FIRST TO SAY, "HO HO HO," AND THOSE WORDS HAVE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS. ALL I ASK OF YOU THIS DAY IS TO TOUCH THE HEART OF ONE PERSON AND REMEMBER: THE RIGHT WORD AT THE RIGHT TIME COULD RESTORE CHRISTMAS IN THE HEART OF A LONEY SOUL.


MERRY CHRISTMAS
