CHRISTmastime is a Promise

We may however say to ourselves, One day these souls of ours will blossom into the full sunshine.  When all that is desirable in the commonness of daily love, and all we long for of wonder and mystery and the look of CHRISTmastime will be joined in one, and we walk as in a wondrous dream yet with more sense of reality that our most waking joy now gives us.  George MacDonald
