By Howard Thurman

"There must always be remaining in every one's life some place for the singing of angels..."
In the meditations found in The Mood of Christmas, Angels sing all year long."

These brief meditations incorporate the hope, celebration, love, compassion, and blessing of the Christmas season and encourage us to find them throughout the year. Features include the poem, "The Work of Christmas",. "When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone... The Work of Christmas begins...", and " I Will Light Candles This Christmas," Candles of joy, despite all sadness, Candles of hope where despair keeps watch. Candles of courage for fears ever present, Candles of peace for tempest-tossed days..."
