Good Friday morning! Have you eaten as much junk as I have these last few days? It seems that around every corner is a new treat or sweet to sample (sometimes two or three samples are necessary). For many of us, today is the last day of work for a bit as vacations will be in abundance over the next week or so. Children are out of school, some plants close up, and many just want to get away for a while. At Christmastime, we like to get away from the normal work and school. Some enjoy a quiet time and others like a good party. In whichever activity you like, remember to worship the Christ child. Our Father in Heaven sent to us a gift that cannot be bought with all of the money in the world. Sadly, a lot of celebrating will be done with too much alcohol or substances even worse. In a season of happiness and cheer, some one's life will be ended by a driver under the influence of some drug or drink. It does seem depressing to think about such things right before going out to enjoy some time off, but we have a responsibility to pray for those who have not seen the light of Jesus. Tomorrow, I will try to do better for ending on a cheerful note.
Christmas is here! Let the glory of the Lord shine on us!
