Hearing from the heart of another is beyond inspiring. Each person's thoughts take us down a journey of discovery and bring to life the story that lies within our own heart. The Christmas Season is immersed with different perspectives and holds special significance to each person individually. Following are four such different, yet deeply moving, thoughts.
“I love Christmas because people think of generosity! My wife, Debbie, and I have given our lives to help other people—all around the world. This Christmas, I challenge you to do something for someone who could never repay you. Generosity is love in action, and the rewards are eternal!” —Mark Blum, Elevated Roofing, LLC, relationship manager
"Like the saying goes, 'Save the best for last.' Living in Frisco, we rarely see snow, but we do have our fireplaces ablaze and family gathered for special times. It doesn’t matter what faith we celebrate during this season; we are kindred spirits, full of the gifts of grace, love and thoughtfulness. Personally, December is my favorite dessert—oh, I mean month (LOL)! Happy End of Year." —Milessa Murphy Stewart, modern impressionist artist
"Love is always in season! Spread love everywhere, first of all, in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness." —Kevin Westerfield, Frisco Chamber of Commerce relationship manager
“The holiday season for me is the time to exhale. The time to give myself grace for what I have or have not accomplished over the past year. A time for gratitude and peace. I love the smiles from people who normally don’t smile, and the special time I spend with family, friends.” —Evelyn Kershaw, stylist and entrepreneur
Generosity. Gifts of grace. Thoughtfulness. Loving one another. Gratitude and peace. Such amazing thoughts that encapsulate this wonderful Christmas season. As Billy Graham shared, "Christmas is the celebration of the event that set heaven to singing, an event that gave the stars of the night sky a new brilliance."
