Christmas is tomorrow and thoughts of those closest to us – family, friends, and the people who make a difference in our lives come to mind.
This holiday season has been particularly difficult with a triple epidemic affecting many. Most precious of all, are the loss of loved ones from viruses felt worldwide. Still, many are planning for the holiday season to be filled with cheer, good food and time spent with family and friends. Count your blessings if you can purchase gifts you’ll share and the elements of that wonderful meal you’ll prepare. Remember those less fortunate for there are many. It is during this time of the year especially that our hearts soften and many display a desire towards helping others. Show kindness and include them in your thoughts, prayers and with what you’ve been blessed with if the opportunity presents itself.
The birth of a baby born thousands of years ago, offer hope and solace for the days to come. It is in this spirit, especially for this Christmas, that we pray your sadness is melted away, that you are comforted by the peace and consolidation that you need, and that you’ll be able to walk into the New Year with purpose and joy.
As we come together, let us remember to celebrate and reflect on the reason for the season: God’s perfect gift to mankind: His only Son, Jesus Christ. Whether you celebrate or not, the season offers all of us something to think about: reflection, gratitude, kindness, and goodwill.
Sending lots of best wishes of joy and love to your circle. We look forward to the day we can see you again. So, from our bubble to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays this season. Take care of yourselves. Spread a little kindness. And most of all stay safe.
