In the Serious Vein
Many are the "wise-cracks"
that are written about Christmas.
But they are written with the
"left-hand" and a twinkle in the
eye. As Raymond Willoughby
"In his own dimensions, man
has accepted the Spirit of Christ
mas as the happy medium for the
translation and expression of hfe
humanity. More than that, it is
the symbol of the eternal child—
the blessed tie that binds maturi
ty to its own lost childhood. What
was v missed is made up to a new
generation, what was shared is
shared again with larger divi
dends of satisfaction from well
timed giving and remembrance.
So faith is kept with the roseate
dreams of children."
