On the Eleventh Day of Christmas

And as we hope for peace in this New Year, it bears repeating:

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to [all]!

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Christmas Bells”

On the Tenth Day of Christmas

I light candles this Christmas
Candles of joy, despite all sadness,
Candles of hope where despair keeps watch.
Candles of courage where fear is ever present,
Candles of peace for tempest-tossed days,
Candles of grace to ease heavey burdens.
Candles of love to inspire all my living,
Candles that will burn all the year long.

– Howard Thurman

On the Ninth Day of Christmas

Peace in Yosemite Valley

Peace in Yosemite Valley

Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day.

– Helen Steiner Rice

On the Eighth Day of Christmas

The Star of Joy
And every time I feel the shine

I am called
to follow it
to sing it
to live it . . .

– Macrina Wiederkehr

Though the way looks dark, shall I follow?
