It is that time of year yet again! Happy Christmas to you all and I hope you are truly blessed in wonderful ways during this festive season. Take some time out to reflect and celebrate all your great wins and treasure all those magic times you had in 2012. And if you did have a few detours and challenges, know they are simply covers for miracles that had no other way of reaching you.   

The following passage was originally created for children. I hope it touches the child within you this Christmas and always.
