Twelve Gifts at Christmas

At the wondrous moment you were born, as you took your first
breath, a great celebration was held in the heavens and twelve
magnificent gifts were granted to you.
The first gift is Strength. May you remember to call upon it
whenever you need it.
The second gift is Beauty. May your deeds reflect its depth.  
The third gift is Courage. May you speak and act with confidence
and use courage to follow your own path.
The fourth gift is Compassion. May you be gentle with yourself
and others. May you forgive those who hurt you and yourself when
you make mistakes.
The fifth gift is Hope. Through each passage and season, may you
trust the goodness of life.
The sixth gift is Joy. May it keep your heart open and filled
with light.
The seventh gift is Talent. May you discover your own special
abilities and contribute them toward a better world.
The eighth gift is Imagination. May it nourish your visions and
The ninth gift is Reverence. May you appreciate the wonder that
you are and the miracle of all creation.
The tenth gift is Wisdom. Guiding your way, wisdom will lead you
through knowledge to understanding. May you hear its soft voice.
The eleventh gift is Love. It will grow each time you give it
The twelfth gift is Faith. May you believe.
