From the East – December

December marks the close of 2008 and WHAT a year it has been.  Like every year, it has had its triumphs and tragedies, its good times, and its hard times.  December is a time to reflect upon the past year and begin looking forward to the next.  It is also a time to reflect upon all God has given us.  It is very easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, pursuing the “next” thing, or working frantically to get everything “checked off” our lists.  We are frequently too hurried, too tired, or too stressed to really enjoy those everyday blessings we have been given.  Each time you see your family and friends this month, take the time to think about what a special gift that person has been to your life, how they have made your life better, and how much that means to you.  These are the real gifts in life.

I want to wish everyone a safe and very Merry Christmas! (I hope everyone who practices another faith will reciprocate with a well wish for their spiritual holiday.)
