Joy to the World!

My brothers and sisters, you don’t have to be a Christian to share in the spirit of Christmas.



When was the last time you thanked a veteran? Usually we’re too busy minding our own business to notice them. Fortunately, there is Veterans Day, on November 11 every year, in honor of persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. So for at least this week, keep alert for Veterans and when you see one, go out of your way to thank them. They’ll always smile and thank you back.


I really love Thanksgiving. Not because it’s a brief vacation or what I consider the start of the Christmas season, but because I am truly thankful for so many things and this holiday provides an opportunity to pause and consider them:

  • That I was born in America, land of the free because of the brave, a beacon of light to dark places in the world.
  • My parents who provided for my needs but not my wants.
  • My wife who is so often my perfect compliment.
  • My children who provide me with purpose.
  • My job which affords me comfort providing comfort to others.

I thank God for these things and so many others that I could fill a book with. I am thankful for Thanksgiving.
