Dear Friends and Family,
Merry Christmas! I am sure it has occured to you, as it has to me, that just as we celebrate this month with a commitment to love a grouchy neighbor, forgive an errant co-worker, be kinder to fellow commuters, spend more time together around the dinner table, all done in rememberance of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we could, if we really wanted, extend more love every day of the year.
Yes, there are more triggers in the music and colored lights of the season to remind us to be a little more gentle in our treatment of each other, but if we could keep Christ in our hearts after we take down the Christmas tree and heft the decorations to the attic, we know we would experience more joy all year long.
Perhaps this year we ought to place a small gift under the Christmas tree for the Christ Child, a handwritten note, an offering of the heart declaring our resolve to love more as He loved. Just imagine what our lives might be like if we developed that kind of a love for all seasons.
God Bless and Keep You Safe,
