A happy time! (For Some – NOT all!)
A time to weigh our time against the time of Jesus!
Where we have been!
Where we are going with our lives!
With so much confusion and hostility!
World governments flexing their muscles!
Brutal mayhem in our streets!
Weak words that cannot encourage the masses!
Countries flexing their might and muscle!
Something noxious tearing at our souls!
Jesus and his churches seek kindness and unity!
Freedom, Liberty no longer has clear meaning!
Cunning, selfish forces cause mad disarray!
We seem to be near some ‘tipping point’!
Will Jesus save the world?
Will Satan steal our days and nights?
Will Jesus yet guide his people home?
Should this time not be for good will and Joy?
For family happiness and joyful days and nights?
For little children happily playing with their Santa gifts?
Is the money and power of the deceitful elite in control?
Christmas Thoughts should be grateful and humane!
Instead, we wear masks and get vaccines!
Good and merciful God, PLEASE TURN THIS TIDE!
How can we happily wish a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to those we love and cherish?
Surely, we can do so, and, must do so, for the sake of
All that should be righteous and all that should be good!
During these days that celebrate the Birth of Jesus we can hope and pray that the miracle of giving and loving can deliver to the world a golden age of peace, of good will, of prosperity for all…
Of course! But it’s all we’ve got.
