The message of Christmas indeed remains one great joy and cause for extreme devotion and worship. It’s really all about Jesus!
The angel declared “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord” Luke 1:11.
This message continues to enlighten the reader informing them that the long period of darkness is over; light has come and peace is made possible. It declares that the Savior, the long-awaited Messiah is born and humankind can now truly celebrate again like the angels in heaven with melodious song and joyful praise.
Therefore, with joyful hearts we celebrate today the triumph of light over darkness and the victory of life over death, made possible by the transcendent God of glory becoming immanent in Christ.
We absolutely remain determined never to forget that God became flesh and miraculously moved into our hearts and neighborhoods, changing our lives and destinies forever. Jn1:14. This thought overwhelms us, but we are convinced that this is the real essence of the Christmas message – God with us! And for this we choose to celebrate this day and everyday forward. It’s really about Jesus!
Lady Chris and I take this opportunity not only to wish you a Merry Christmas but to also say thank you from the depths of our hearts for twelve wonderful years of your love, care, prayers and support. For twelve years you took us into your hearts, your homes, your churches, your fellowship and allowed us to be ourselves and serve you. You treated us royally and made it easy for us to serve and function. Indeed you also were easy to love in return and we thank you!
It’s hard to think that twelve years have gone by so quickly. It really is true “Time flies by when you’re having fun.” When we arrived here Jessie and James were 12 and 9 years old. Now they are young adults with Jessie in Graduate school and James in his final year of University. Jessie and James remain grateful and also say thanks! We sincerely thank God for His amazing grace!
We move on but will always carry you in our hearts remembering you always in our prayers. We move on, knowing that we tried always to do our best! Thank you again, all of you for every word and deed of kindness extended to Sister Chris, Jessica, James and myself. We love you dearly!
We continue on our journey but so glad we were able to stop by. Remember always to be faithful. Jesus shortly returns! We wish you a spirit-filled and blessed Christmas. All the best for the years to come! May His face ever shine on you. With much love always!
