I wasn’t raised a Christian so growing up, Christmas to me meant presents, parties, and cookies. It wasn’t until later in life that the holiday changed meaning for me and now it is my faith that predominately makes the day special. However, being with my family and sharing the day with them will bring me much joy and I couldn’t imagine celebrating with anyone but them. The presents, parties, and cookies are just a bonus now. It’s the fellowship that is dear to my heart.
As this week moves closer to the holiday, no matter what your beliefs are and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it feels like the perfect opportunity to tell you how grateful I am for your fellowship and for the time that you take from your busy life to read my letters each week. I feel incredibly blessed to share this planet with you and it is my Christmas wish that you have a wonderful and safe week no matter what you do. Be safe my friend and remember to stay grateful.
With love and gratitude,
