I’d like to try something different. I decided to take a two day hiatus from posting political stuff, so that I can celebrate the reason for Christmas with my family, as a new Christian. It’s sort of “My gift to family & friends”. I won’t quit commenting on stuff though – geez, I’m not a quitter.
Anyway, I would like to hear from as many of our silent lurkers as possible. I don’t care what name or email you use. Make something up. Just take a minute and let your brothers & sisters know that you wish them a Merry Christmas, or Kwanzaa, or winter solstice, or whatever.
(^^^See how diverse I am? )
Many of us are operating on limited means, with a diminished outlook going into the new year. Many have lost loved ones, or jobs, or their homes; and so, Christmas is not the best time of year for them. Some of us don’t have family and friends to share Christmas with.
In considering Christmas, and in keeping with the reason for the holy day, I would just remind folks of Philippians 4:7-8
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
If there be any good thing in your life, think on that thing. Celebrate Christmas for the joy it can bring, through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Or just celebrate it for the fact that it brings people together and makes them nicer for a couple of days each year.
Merry Christmas to all of my brothers & sisters of The Real Revo!
