    25 WAYS WE'RE DIFFERENT THIS CHRISTMAS

    1.Last Christmas we were thinking about all
    the things we didn't have;this Christmas we are thinking about all the
    things we do have.
    2.Last Christmas we were placing wreaths on
    the doors of our homes;this Christmas we are placing wreaths on the graves
    of our heroes.
    3.Last Christmas we were letting our sons
    play with toy guns; this Christmas
    we are teaching them that guns are not toys.

    4.Last Christmas we were counting our money;
    this Christmas we are counting our blessings.
    5.Last Christmas we were lighting candles to
    decorate; this Christmas we are
    lighting candles to commemorate.
    6.Last Christmas we paid lip service to the
    real meaning of the holidays; this Christmas we are paying homage to it.
    7.Last Christmas we were digging deep into
    our bank accounts to find money to fly home for the holidays; this Christmas
    we are digging deep within ourselves to find the courage to do so.
    8.Last Christmas we were trying not to let
    annoying relatives get the best of us; this Christmas we are trying to give
    the best of ourselves to them.
    9.Last Christmas we thought it was enough to
    celebrate the holidays;this Christmas we know we must also find ways to
    consecrate them.
    10.Last Christmas we thought a man who could
    rush down a football field was
    a
    hero; this Christmas we know a man who
    rushes into a burning building is the
    real one.
    11. Last Christmas we were thinking about the
    madness of the holidays; this Christmas we are thinking about the meaning of
    them.
    12. Last Christmas we were getting on one
    another's nerves; this
    Christmas we are getting on our knees.
    13. Last Christmas we were giving thanks for
    gifts from stores; this
    Christmas we are giving thanks for gifts
    from GOD.
    14. Last Christmas we were wondering how to give
    our children all the things that money can buy; this Christmas we are
    wondering how to give them all the things money can't (peace, security).
    15. Last Christmas we were thinking about all
    the pressure we were under at the office; this Christmas we are thinking
    about all the people who

    no
    longer have an office to go to.

    16. Last Christmas we were singing carols; this
    Christmas we are singing anthems.
    17. Last Christmas we were thinking how good it
    would feel to be affluent; this Christmas we are thinking how good it feels
    to be alive.
    18. Last Christmas we thought angels were in
    heaven; this Christmas we know they are right here on earth.
    19. Last Christmas we were contemplating all the
    changes we wanted to make in the new year; this Christmas we are
    contemplating all the changes we

    will have to make in this new reality.
    20. Last Christmas we believed in the power of
    the pocketbook; this
    Christmas we believe in the power of prayer.

    21. Last Christmas we were sharing / spreading /
    listening to gossip; this Christmas we are sharing / spreading / listening
    to the Gospel.
    22. Last Christmas we were complaining about how
    much of our earnings went to taxes; this Christmas we comprehend that
    freedom isn't free.
    23. Last Christmas we valued things that were
    costly; this Christmas we value things that are holy.
    24. Last Christmas the people we idolized wore
    sports uniforms; this
    Christmas the people we idolize wear police,
    firefighter and military uniforms.
    25. Last Christmas peace on earth was something
    we prayed for on Sunday morning; now it's something we pray for every day.
