Another Christmas in the Land of Christ, Another Year of Blessing!

This year, as every year, we have been blessed. I consider it a great blessing that we have spent three years celebrating Christmas a short drive from its original location. I give thanks for the ability to be removed from the over-commercialization of Christmas in the US and return to its original meaning. Contrary to popular belief, Christmas is NOT about presents. It's NOT about trees. It's not about carols and hot chocolate (okay maybe for me it IS about hot chocolate, but...). Christmas IS about...

the birth of Jesus.

2000 years later, this holiday is in memory of the birth of a small child who would change the world. He has changed the world. He is changing the world. He will continue to change the world. Joy to the World! Christ Our Savior Is Born!

For those who share this blessed day with me, Merry Christmas. For those of other faiths, I hope that your blessings this year have been as uncountably great as mine. I hope even more that your blessings in the coming year will give you cause to praise God at every turn. May your year ahead be full of God's Grace and Mercy. And, know that you have our love with you in this blessed season.

Happy Christmas!
