Merry Christmas

You may believe Jesus is "the reason for the season" or you may believe in Santa Claus. Whatever you believe is fine with me. I don't want to fight. I don't want a "war on Christmas." In fact, what I do want is peace on earth, but that looks impossible for the immediate future, so I'll simply wish everyone a Christmas day filled with love, peace of mind and goodwill.

I also wanted to share a couple pictures of my granddaughter Gracie with you because I think children exemplify the unconditional love of Jesus - and in my opinion, that love is the true spirit of Christmas.

I hope she brings a smile to your face and lightens your spirits like she does mine.

Merry Christmas and God bless.

Merry Christmas right back at you, Kathy. I am not a Christian but I am sick and tired of people arguing the ridiculous point that the alleged birthday of Christ should no longer be called Christmas. I don't hear any other religion changing the name of their holidays. Best to you and yours.

Merry Christmas Kathy!

She's gorgeous! Check out this morning's Coffee Talk over at MichLib under People News.

Thanks for the well wishes! Isn't it funny how we are supposedly the ones that teach the children, yet if we pay close enough attention, they are the ones that teach us.

Enjoy your Christmas as well!
