Christmas Present

For the past one month, I've been meeting numerous G.I's at the airport. I had the privilege of buying lunch/dinner for some of them and to dine with them.

After hearing their stories, I felt warm at heart and could see their enthusiasm to get home early for Christmas. To many kids all they wished was their Dad/Mom serving in Iraq to come back home alive and be there for Christmas.

I wish many families were lucky this year.

Let's not make the eternally fateful error of worshiping a babe in the manager and rejecting the Christ of the Cross.

Merry Christmas

"...and she gave birth to her first son. Because there were no rooms left in the inn, she wrapped the baby with pieces of cloth and laid him in a feeding trough." - Luke 2:7

Wish you a Merry Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ.  May Jesus be born in our hearts today.
