Xmas - 2013

As we are knee deep in the Holiday season for this year, we embark on the season of giving. I think that giving is much more powerful than receiving. That is, the reward of someone else’s appreciation of your thoughtful giving.

Most of us will travel great distances to be with family and loved ones. Some of us remain overseas, a world away from home. To them we remember, pray for and eagerly await their return.

It is also a time of family traditions, both old and new. It may include something to do with finding the perfect Christmas tree, hanging Christmas lights on the house or cooking family recipes.

So, here we are, near and far. Turn off the phone, but don’t roam alone. Keep yourself warm and give someone a kiss. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.
