From the Pastor's Desk 

Romans 15:13 NLT

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

I’m not sure what is going on with me right now, but I’m feeling a little different about Christmas this year. I’m not sure why but approaching this Christmas season seems different. Believe it or not I’m not going to say BAHHUMBUG this year. If you walk into my office you might even see a Christmas tree on my desk.

 

This year because of Nissa’s surgery, we decided to put up all our Christmas decorations early. This is the earliest we’ve ever put up our Christmas decorations. I get up early every morning and turn on the lights on the Christmas tree, because I know she can’t bend over and do it at this point.

 

Christmas is a time for joy and time to be together with family and friends. So, my motto for this year is to spread the joy of the birth of Jesus as much as I can. The greatest gift ever given to our world was found wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

 

Over the years I’ve allowed the commercialization of Christmas to get in the way. This year I’ve decided to turn back the clock if you will and focus of the true joy of Christmas. The joy of gathering with family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.

 

All this could be because I’m getting a little soft in my old age. This Christmas take the time to spread a little joy to the old Grinches of the world. I pray that God will bless you as you gather with your family and friends this Christmas season.

 

Remember to keep Christ at the CENTER of all your Christmas gatherings this year!

 

Blessings,
