Winter, Christmas, End of Year
December is a very busy month with winter arriving, Christmas coming and the end of the year, all in just the last nine days of the month.
I know for me and many veterans this month is not always the happiest time of the year and we can get depressed or moody and not always sure why. My feelings go to my friends that never made it home to celebrate the season with their families, people spend-ing money that they do not have on stuff people do not really need or want, and people turning this holiday season into a big marketing hype and forgetting why we should celebrate Christmas.
Jesus Christ was the world’s gift from GOD to be our Savor, and Lord of All to those who believe in Him. Jesus came to earth to be born a man and dies for our sins and forgiveness to all. So celebrate the birth of our Lord and rejoice with happiness for His love.
This is also the time of season’s change and the year coming to the end so new things can begin and so should you. Celebrate the year you had but think about what you can start new this coming year, be it a new hobby, volunteering at a new place( something differ-ent at the Post), or just changing something in your life style. Remember it is not too late to start anew.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
Please call, text, or email me when someone is in the hospital, sick, dies, or in the need of prayers or spiritu-al guidance.
