New Beginnings

Another Christmas day is about to dawn upon us in 2009. And this year, unlike many in the near past, finds millions of Americans shaking their heads in bewilderment, wondering how their fortunes, futures, homes, and jobs have slipped away. Believing they could trust in investments, loan officers, and corporations, many have proven not worthy of this trust. Some, unfortunately, have proven to be scoundrels and thieves, plundering the financial security of millions.

So, this may prove to be a rather sad Christmas, bereft of piles of presents beneath those trees, replaced with notes of love and hugs, reminding each other that families and love outweigh things any day. And for those who not only lost most material possessions but have no family to hug, I offer the love of Christ; a never-ending or failing love, transcending all disappointment and failure in this world. His love for you, proven on Calvary's cross, written in His own blood flowing down that cross, can give a new beginning and eternal hope for all of us.

God bless us, everyone...

  1. Families and hugs do outweigh things any day. Thanks for the reminder that Christmas led to the cross and the cross gives us a new beginning (which is actually redundant, since a beginning IS new).
