Grace and peace, Saints!
Today is Christmas, and I want to wish you all a safe, peaceful, and blessed day.
You may notice that I didn’t say “happy.” That is because not everyone will be happy today. Some will not be happy because they are not with family and friends. Others will not be happy because they weren’t able to buy presents for their children. Still others will not be happy because they or a loved one are in the hospital. And still others will not be happy because someone they love very much has passed on into the next world, and will not be here this year to spend Christmas with them. Some will not be happy because they are alone.
While you are enjoying Christmas with your family, please think on these people. They would like to be where you are today, but life happened to them, differently than it happened to you. Say a prayer for them. And while you’re at it, say a prayer for yourself, and thank God that it wasn’t you.
Putt, I’m sorry that Ronnie can’t be here this Christmas. And I’m sorry that I can’t be there for you and Stink. I love you both, and I’m thinking of you all.
Remember, Christmas is not about being happy. Life can be too difficult to keep up that charade. Christmas is about Jesus and Him crucified. If you’re a Christian, then you have a reason to celebrate. If you’re not, then you should really consider becoming one. If you’re not interested…well…enjoy the day off.
God bless you all, and have a safe, peaceful, and blessed day.
The Still Man
