Today I am so thankful for so much; my heart is so full. It's amazing to think I was there. It's amazing to think I am now here and I sometimes forget that we are still there. I have good friends there now and it's sobering to hear from them and read the news about what happens in their part of the world.
All I can say, is that I do pray for peace, for hearts to be softened, and for political maneuverings to not be so selfish. I think ahead to what the possibilities are and I'm breathless with anticipation for the promised peace and good will toward all men.
The Christmas season is such a good time to remember that He did indeed come here among us. That one night on Earth, a long time ago, angels sang praises, shepherds rushed to greet Him, and a new little family was started with the promise of peace for all mankind.
