It’s Christmas Day…a day of joy and the celebration of the birth of Jesus. A day to be grateful for the plan that God put into place to offer us hope, change and new life. Happy Birthday Jesus!
I am blessed to be surrounded by my family today – my wife, all 6 of our kids, our 2 daughter-in-laws, son-in-law, my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and last but not least, our 5 awesome grandchildren. I do not take that for granted. Family is precious and I believe I have the very best family on the planet!
I am blessed and I am grateful. It is a wonderful and memorable day.
I am also mindful that this day is very painful for many. Many are alone; many are sad because finances were not available for food or presents for their children; many have lost loved ones this year; many are physically or mentally ill. Today is not a joyful day for many people.
So as you celebrate and enjoy the day with your family, say a prayer for those who need help, hope and healing. If you know someone like this, reach out to them.
From the Flockhart family to yours…Merry Christmas! May your day be full of unexpected blessings and great memories!
