Merry Christmas 2015
Silent night. Holy night. All is calm. All is bright.
It is a quiet but blessed Christmas this year. Since June it’s been a trial. Loss in the storm and since has been difficult.
Blessings have been many. While it’s been a case of uncertainty and not being able to give much for Christmas there is much good in the world.
Christmas lists change as one passes through life. It starts with wanting half of the old wish books parents dreaded. Then getting more practical then wanting to give to others. Then sometimes the realization that we can’t out give God.
Then there’s the impossible to us gifts. Paying off bills or wishing a child or relative or friend would be cured of medical issues or one more holiday with loved ones no longer here. Phone calls are more precious. Sometimes the gift is in the giving which is the answer to a prayer of not being alone. Sometimes all is calm depends on us.
Sleep in Heavenly peace. Thank you to so many who have helped this year. Merry Christmas to those near and far.
