First I want to take a moment to acknowledge all the soldiers serving near & far this holiday season. May God grant you peace, strength, joy and courage always! To the military families that are left behind know that God's grace is sufficient to see you through this temporary separation. In spite of how much we may miss our deployed loved ones, we carry on in their honor with character, love & pride. We await their safe & speedy return with joyous anticipation.
As someone who believes wholeheartedly in Jesus Christ I want to leave you with some warm words of Christmas cheer in hopes they last from year to year.
May the right hand of God ever hold you in keeping
Through coming and going, through waking and sleeping,
May the love of the Christ-Child your spirit be lighting
And the smile of His Mother your heart be delighting;
May Blessed St. Joseph be near you in sorrow,
And the high Saints of Teresa be guarding your tomorrow,
May Peace be your treasure, and long be your living,
With joy in good measure for taking and giving.
In friendship galore beyond bound or expressing
To your door I am sending this Christmas blessing.
I thank you again for your blog support & wish you the happiest of holidays.
