Christmas


Christmas is nearly here! We patiently wait to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus. Remember folks... and be man or women enough to call it what it is. This is the season of CHRISTMAS! If we were living in Israel we would call Hanukkah ... yes Hanukkah. If we lived in Iraq we would call Ramadan... yes Ramadan. There is no good gained by calling Christmas "the Holidays". If your friends or family do not believe in Christ then you should respect them enough to send them a card on their chosen special day , whether it is Happy Hanukkah or Happy Chinese New Year. Do not disrespect them by turning their special days into a "nothing Holiday". Also respect Christian beliefs instead tearing the Christ from Christmas.

Have a joyful Advent, Steve

I hate the fact that not many people say Merry Christmas anymore. Instead people say Happy Holidays...ugh.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment you left. I know God will use it regardless. I believe He wants me well, I'll never let go of that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be your prison work was very interesting. I have considered such work, myself.

You know, I tend to send people Christmas cards, even it they don't celebrate Christmas. It is the spirit of joy and caring that I want to share. (I hope they don't mind. I certainly wouldn't mind getting a Hanukkah card!)

Merry Christmas!
