Oh Holy Night

Although many scholars point to another time of year for the birth of God's Son, this night still has a reverence, a specialness unlike the rest of the year. The world doesn't change, we do.

Our hearts enlarge and fill with God's joy. Even during struggles, this night evokes hope of better things to come.

 "For God so loved the world he sent his only begotten Son."

Our sins are forgiven, ensuring we will one day share in God's eternal life.

I have been fortunate to experience a divine encounter. Nothing in this world can compare to the joy of being face to face with a God who loves us as we are, flawed and imperfect. All he asks in return is our unconditional love and total trust. It doesn't matter how many times we fail, only how hard we try. It is our effort that counts.

With God as the center of our existence, all earthly struggles fall into place. Either God will provide all the things we need to continue in this life, or he will take us home to him. Either way, we win.

Merry Christmas. Love and joy to men of goodwill.
