Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta "LRTHBRIDGE. ALUUKTA MOXUAY. DKCEMBKH n, --CHRISTMAS SUCTION CL ft IllSlllSIS NUMBER I J Iterg, fcry There is music in these words th'at thrills our Hearts with joy. Christmas day with its cheery grace, is your day. .What are you going to do Are you going to take what it offers you and b'e glad? Christmas day of the happy heart, the open mind with all the joy of living and loving, when men, women and little children seem one by one to open their hearts freely, for the sweet impulses of the time steals into .the souls of all. This day derives special charm from the feeling that we can do something for others. And that Christmas cheer is yours if- you but seek it and make the utmost of what comes your way instead of craving that which comes to others. The ingredients which constitute the full-orbed joy of, a Merry Christmas are an unselfish desire for the welfare of charity, good will, love and sympathy. May you in the fullness of your heart have an ample por-- tion of all of these, for that is th'e.song the Christmas-.chimes ring to call us to acts'of kindly opportunities.. .-t Have you developed your ability for gratitude? Are you'prepared to receive''graciously the sympathy, love and friendship offered tpjyou? Will you glorify thisTChristrnastide by sharing of your blessings with others? y. Will you acquire a clear vision-to distinquish between the ugly and beautiful, the essential and the unessential, the just and the unjust, the false and the true? Will you heighten the lightsomeness of the Yuletide flame by kindling into flatne an optimistic spirit, which will illumine hearts darkened by shadows1 and trembling with fears? The poorest homes may be brightened by candles of light and cheer, while many a mansion remains dark because of the lack of sympathy and love.J Will your thoughts reach to the supreme privilege of helping those little ones who have been deprived of even the ordinary comforts, and see to it that they at least have some of the pleasures which gave joy to your juvenile years, and pro- vided you with a great accumulation of vibrant memories? May the desire to give cheer, sympathy, hope andlriend- ship come to you as a miracle, which comes to rich" and poor, young arid old at this festival." May the spirit of "good-will" grow that It may b'ring life, hope and cheer more abundantly to all in all classes, in all guide the plight of many who toil earnestly yet have not the wherewithal to enjoy a contented Christmas. May you step out into the year 6f 1917 with a confidence and kindness warmed with the fire of Good Will which the spirit of Christmas has kindled in your heart, and realize, "That the best is yet to and that you can say, "You have lived and loved today." The joy of giving is tho chief Joy of Christmas. This may be yours by donating to the Herald's Goodtellows' J'iind, which in an annual fund created to. bring cheap "to, those' homes In the city, where Christmas cheer perhaps might otherwise be unknown. In spite the general prosperity this year, there are some who are needy this Christmas, and these whose prosperity has been abundant may enjoy Christmas the more by donating to The Herald's Goodfellows' Fund. Donations received by The Herald od the Niursing Mission and distributed through tne Nursing Mission. Previously 25.00 ;
