Merry Christmas
We are quickly approaching the day when the White Bearded Man in a Red Suite appears to thrill the children of all ages – some experience the joy of receiving an unexpected gift and others smile when they give gifts that brings a twinkle to the eye. As we reflect on gift giving, let’s not forget the greatest gift of all.  For some accepting gifts is difficult especially the one that says you are loved, which is the message of the season.  We understand a generous heart.   But it is also important to receive the gifts of ‘Peace” and “Joy to the World” in the whirlwind of the season!
