Christmas means a lot of different things to different people all around the world. For some it is a time of overwhelming excitement as they await Santa Claus, presents, family, food and festivities. For many it holds painful memories. For some it is a time of reflection and remembering, while for others it is about peace. joy, goodwill and Jesus. There are, of course, others who don’t celebrate it at all and others who wish it would all just go away. Whatever your views and thoughts about Christmas are, and I’m sure you know mine, my prayer for you is that these coming days would be good, enjoyable, safe, painless and joyful. Most of all I pray that you would experience something of that first Christmas, when the Prince of Peace came to earth. May you know God’s peace in your hearts and minds this Christmas.
