Merry Christmas, everyone!
Christmas is less than a week away.
Family is soon to be in town.
Gifts wrapped and under the tree.
Cleaning is coming along.
Baking will ensue in a few days.
Decorations have long been ready.
Christmas music is the tune of choice.
I love Christmas so much.
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
However, I have been reminded this year that not everyone sees Christmas as being "jolly and bright." There are families struggling to pay the bills. Kids go another holiday without family. Some hope to just "get through" the holiday season.
My heart and prayers go out for these people.
I hope, regardless of what's going on, that you can find some joy this holiday season. Be glad in the fact that you are simply alive and healthy. You can walk. You can talk. You can see. You can breathe. And you can enjoy. Above all, I hope we can all be overjoyed by the fact that God sent his son to us. So that you can live, breathe, love, and cherish life.
love, joy & peace to you all!
