“Merry Christmas! May this day be a reminder to each of us of Christ’s love! There will, no doubt, be lots of opportunity for laughter and fellowship and games and food, but I pray that amongst all of the wonderful Christmas festivities that you take time to reflect on WHY we celebrate Christmas. It’s Christ’s gift of love and salvation that truly brings us hope and healing!”

Then, they continue,  “‘Joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth RECEIVE her King. Let every heart PREPARE Him ROOM…’ We know that the Lord has come and that He will come again! May we each be ready: making sure we have received Him as our Savior and have prepared room for Him in our hearts and lives.. in our schedules and festivities! That is the key to our real JOY! May you have a blessed and joy-filled day as we celebrate His birth and the Reason for this Season!”
