My comments will not be nearly as eloquent as Nicks but I would still like to send my thoughts.
May Christmas challenge us all to be the people we truly wish we could be. May love and good cheer be a part of our daily lives, not just something we strive for once a year. Remember that you are a beloved creation of an Incomprehensibly Generous God. And whatever your faith or lack of faith, enjoy the season in the manner that brings you the most joy! (It don't get more PC than that, huh?)
Merry Christmas to you all!!
