In just less than a week we will welcome the most cherished of holidays, Christmas Day.  The days preceding this most precious time are filled with excitement, anticipation, believing hearts and above all, hope and faith.  The birth of Jesus Christ brought all of these gifts and more, to each one of us.  He has filled our lives with light enough for our journey here on earth and His great love to ever surround us.  It is my wish  that we unwrap these beautiful gifts tenderly, not only at Christmas time, but every day.
