Merry Christmas!

After experiencing 2020, we welcome and embrace this Christmas season maybe, like never before. The Joy of Christmas this year, can’t come soon enough. Nothing seems to bring people together quite like Christmas.

Many people pray for and dream of what many of us take for granted. Especially at Christmas, help change the world one person at a time, help change a person’s life by giving to those less fortunate.

Once a year, each Christmas, for a few days a year at least, we and millions of our neighbors and friends turn aside from our preoccupations and join together in a community of wonder. With the passage of time and increased maturity, our excitement regarding Christmas may change… the tree reminds us of the tree Jesus died on to pay for our sins. The lights testify that He is the Light of the World, and the gifts are a mere shadow of the greatest gift ever given - Jesus Christ. I don’t want a Christmas you can buy. I don’t want a Christmas you can make. What I want is a Christmas that holds me, remakes me, revives me. I want a Christmas that whispers, Jesus…

May Christmas, hold you too.

Always Good News,  Michael Shirley
