Merry Christmas

To the Editor:

Christmas season is here with the hustle and bustle of decorating and gifts to buy. It made me stop and reflect on what this season is truly about.

The heavenly Father, with unconditional love for each of us, sent his son to be born here on earth to save mankind.

As Jesus took on his role for his purpose here, he suffered pain and sorrow as we do and yet because he loved us so much, at the end of his life gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could freely receive the most ultimate gift ever given — eternal life.

What an awesome God we serve.

My Christmas prayer is that each of you in our beautiful community as well as all the military men and women have a blessed Christmas and a prosperous new year.
