The politicians want to color the world in their image. But in their haste to control, they forget the strength of family and faith in this country. What makes America great is the family unit. It reminds one of a Christmas card with the family gathered around the fire – a hearth of love and warmth. Somehow, generations have changed, but children still look to us for love, support, and security. We have to stand firm in faith for their sake. Christmas is Jesus. If you use Jesus as the celebration and put Santa in the background, you will experience a Christmas like no other. It is amazing how the Holy Spirit can cover us in instant love. The more we go to our personal prayer place the more our eyes are open to that love. The more we receive love the more we can share it with the family. No matter what is happening in the world, the strength of our family will hold us together. I do not know how people endure life without faith. This may be the time to spread this love. Each member of the family can pray for the rebirth of a person. It is a gift that has no price tag. You are offering up a person in eternal prayer without them even knowing. I cannot think of a more precious gift. Life may be harder, but we have to think smarter to endure. Yes, evil does walk the earth, yet we have the greatest gift of God’s love to protect us. When confusion reigns and you feel all is lost or out of your control, lean on your faith and remember, God is in control. He will never give you more than you can handle, and no matter the situation, He can bring good from it if we continue to have faith. This holiday season, give your faith to Jesus. His sacrifice still stands firm, and His love is eternal. Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas.
