The Meaning of Christmas...

Fellow Jeepers,

I wish everyone of you and your beautiful families a beautiful Christmas!! I know, for me, I always love this time of the year but sometimes I get distracted and forget what Christmas is. It is one of the most beautiful times of the year and yet, it provides the most distractions...

The word "Christmas" comes from "Christ's Mass", the Mass celebrating Christ's Birth. What a great gift God gave us! And at this special time of the year, I have to keep reminding myself that is isn't about gifts or presents to receive, but about preparing myself to be a better person to celebrate Christ's Birth. His gift of Self, for love of us. His gift of Self, to redeem our sins. His gift of Self, to open the gates of Heaven.

Sometimes all the pressure, preparations and parties and I truly forget what Christmas is about until Mass, then I am brought back to reality... I am brought back to what Christmas is truly about!

Fellow jeepers, brothers and sisters, I wish you and your beautiful families a fantastic Christmas! I hope all of you stay safe and warm, and may the love of Christ warm your hearts during this winter.

Take care,

Amen 1SAS!

It's refreshing to be able to log on and have a note from someone talking about Jesus and God. Some people are so intent on taking God out of our lives, and so many are afraid to talk about such things, for fear of offending others. One of the reasons I enjoy going up to Lancaster PA.

My landlord just got a license plate (Va) that has a picture of an American flag, with the words "In God We Trust" underneath the flag. I really like it and think I may just HAVE to get one as well.

Thanks for the kind words!! I wasn't going to write this, but I am really choked up. I am so used to writing things about God to only them "shoved down my throat" by others. Thanks for the kindness and love. May we never forget that without God we are nothing and may His love protect you and your families this Christmas.

Take care,
