Well guys it is christmas eve yet again. It always amazes me how fast this time of year arrives. I'm very glad to say i'm not in it for the gifts. Both the giving or recieving. This year being what it is i'm glad more people have pared down to what is important. We really didn't need all the i wants, i needs, i gotta haves, this year. With so many being out of work and the debt issues with us as well as our government we really needed to step back and take a long look at where we were at. Sometimes i have this sinking feeling the lord had a hand in all this. He wants us to remember what it is like to want, wish, and dream. In this sea of credit we have forgotten what that is all about. My wish for this year was peace. Peace in my own life as well as the lives of others.
I want to wish all a very merry christmas, but let's not forget about the reason for the season. our lord and savior jesus christ. Oh to go back to the old days, with midnight mass, family gatherings, and such hope of a child we shut our eyes on christmas eve to wait for santa. The waking up to find he had come and that meant you had been good all year long. Or at least he thought so.
So as we settle in this evening for a nice winter nap, remember to say a prayer of thanks to our lord, thanks for the blessings, thanks for putting you to bed safe, thanks for the family, and most of all thainks for just being. michelle.
