Thoughts for Christmas Day

I apologize for the long lack of posts on this blog. I have been moving to a new residence. Today, I discovered a quote from Abdu'l-Baha. This quote shows the Abdu'l-Baha sought to keep the Christmas spirit present in his life at all times.

The quote is below. It was taken from "The Baha'i World Faith" page 356.

Be ye a sprinkling of rain to every meadow
.......and a water of life to every tree.
Be ye as fragrant musk to every nostril and a soul-refreshing breeze to every invalid.
Be ye salutary water to every thirsty one,
a wise guide to every one led astray,
an affectionate father or mother to every orphan,
.........and, in the utmost joy and fragrance,..............
a son or daughter to every one bent with age.

Be ye a rich treasure to every indigent one;
consider love and union as a delectable paradise,
and count annoyance and hostility as the torment of hell-fire.
.......Exert with your soul;
seek no rest in body;
supplicate and beseech with your heart and search for divine assistance and favor
