Christmas is an very busy time of the year for most of us. It is the closure of the year's business. There is the shopping for Christmas gifts and the planning of family visits and Christmas parties. We run here and there without taking a breath. This year, may the Lord give you a time of silence as of a gentle snow fall in the country and peace to reflect upon the greatest GIFT, the gift of salvation through faith in Jesus. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6).
