Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!

Take a deep breath…slow down…and pause for a moment.  December is chaotic.  I often wake up and it’s December 26th and I wonder, where did this month go?  It’s so important to remind yourself to stop and reflect on why we celebrate this season in the first place.

Thank God for the many blessings in your life and pray for those less fortunate.  Remember those who have lost loved ones.  Remember the thousands of men and women over seas fighting for our freedom; and remember that they too are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, and uncles who all have families at home missing them terribly.  Remember those that are sick, especially children who are spending their Christmas holiday in the hospital.  I cannot imagine the toll that must take on their families. Remember those who are cold, hungry, tired, overworked, or lonely.  Pray that God’s grace will bring them comfort tonight.

Most of all I pray that each of you will remember God has given us this brief moment on earth.  Treasure it.  Be grateful. Be humble. Forgive and most importantly, love.  Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.
