Marry Christmas!

The children at St. Luke's, grades 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 (about 100 all-in-all) donated today 90 handmade Christmas cards that will be delivered by the Servants of the Father of Mercy to area homeless men, women and children on Christmas Day along with a warm blanket and $10 Subway Sandwich gift card in the Ventura and Orange county areas.  The children at St. Lawrence Martyr grade school also made just about as many. Here are a few notable quotes of poetry from the children . . . Kids say the darndst' things!

"Feeling sad today?  If "yes" then here is a joke to help you feel better.  "Why did the chicken cross the road?"  (flip card over)  "To get away from McDonald's!"

"Marry Christmas!"

"Have a Merry Christmas and do let the Lord keep you warm.  May God bless you, from your friend, Dylan"

"Congratulations!  By receiving my card you have officially become my friend . . . With lots of love, Vanessa"

"Hello and Merry Christmas!  I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  Your buddy and friend, Alyssa"

"This is your Christmas card activity:  Unscramble the following words . . .
1. crhismtsas
2. ejsus
3. agmi
4. ngmare"

"I hope you have the opportunity to celebrate the Christmas holidays with peace and the happiness you deserve.  Your friend, Steven"

"Have a great Christmas!  I will pray for you.  May God help you with all your needs."

"Christmas is my favorite holiday.  It makes me happy.  I hope it makes you happy too! Love, Ted

Okay, hopefully the children made you smile a little.  That's what Christmas is all about, little kids, babies and the BIG kid in all of us.  The children are counting on you and everyone who reads their story here to purchase at least one $10 gift card and help fill up their 200 greeting cards with Subway Sandwich gift cards.  Put a smile on a kid's face and donate today at
