Merry Christmas to all
Santa's coming.....the age old belief of children young and old. He brings with him the reminder to be caring, mindful, and kind to those around us. I believe in Santa. Or rather, I believe in the spirit of Santa. He reminds me what the season is about. It's not about the gifts under the tree. It's not about a jolly man in a red suit. It's about faith, family, friends, and forgiveness. If I stay still and ponder these things, it becomes clear that it's all about Christ. The caring for those less fortunate; the sharing of what we have with those who are in need; the loving of all mankind. This is what this time of year brings to me. He is the reason for the season. Let us be mindful of those around us. Enjoy your families and friends. Live as Christ has lived and still lives. May all the blessings of the season surround you each and every day.
