As always, the Christmas season is hectic, but this year is especially so with my wife, Brenda, in charge of two church dinners and a breakfast, then there's wedding bells upcoming. My son, Michale, is finally tying the knot. But along with that we put on a shower for the bride, then there's the wedding, and wedding breakfast upcoming, three days before Christmas -- and that's not the end of it.
With all that, is it any wonder we're having difficulty enjoying this special season? Still, I want to take a moment to reflect on all the wonderful Christmases I've enjoyed and I know, in spite of all that's going on to distract us, this Christmas will be as wonderful and special as any, maybe even more so.
So, with that, I wish everyone (all 1 or 2 of you) a wonderful and love-filled Christmas, and I hope you will take time to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Lord and Savior into this world, who taught us he wonderful gospel and culminated his ministry with his sacrifice in the Garden of Gethsemane, and on the cross, to pay the price for our sins so we don't have to if we accept Christ and repent of all our wrong doings. Then, if we do that we can return to our Heavenly Father some day where we can inherit ALL that He has.
So I wish you a very Merry Christmas to all.
