This time of year is so special: Giving us a loving, giving and cheerful spirit. That Spirit makes the world around us, nicer for everyone; a reminder of our blessings. Those blessings are shared with others through our phone calls, cards, greetings and gifts, all of which may be sealed and sent with the warmth of our love, to bless and last all year.

It is wishing the entire world could know the joy of knowing and having the Prince of Peace in their hearts, not only for Christmas, but all year. May our prayers for America and the world be to enjoy the gentle blessings from Heaven, with God sending down His gifts of miracles and love.

As we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus, may we never lose the excitement that comes with this special time. I will never forget the day I walked into the site where Jesus was said to have been born in Bethlehem. What a feeling of walking down the path where He had walked and played.

I want you to notice the spelling of Jerusalem. When in Israel, a native told me that Jerusalem and America were joined together, which surprised me. He told me they prayed for America. He said the United States of America was blessed because we were in the center of Jerusalem: JerUSAlem. What a blessing to know they pray for us! I pray we never forget them.

Remember, this time of year is special. It revives the real Spirit of love, giving and spreading cheer! Merry Christmas to all!

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
