.... before time gets away from me, and I forget to say it.....

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you....
I personally choose to celebrate the birth of Christ at this time of year, but I realize we may have many other members who choose to celebrate in a different fashion...

it matters not, because, that is the entire essence of what Christmas says to me....
it says to me to love ....

It doesn't say to 'love if they believe as you do'...
It doesn't say 'love if they speak the right language'...
.... "love if they bow the knee with the same words of prayer "

The Word that I hold dear to my heart simply says to "love"....

I use the greeting “Merry Christmas” because the name of the Savior I have chosen is held within the greeting.
If you want to wish me and others
“Happy Holidays”
“Happy Hannukah”
“Happy Kwanzaa”

or any other ‘tiding of great joy’, I will not be offended…. I will be blessed and count myself lucky that you choose to offer me a greeting and blessing that is DEAR to your heart, dear to YOUR faith….
WHAT A COMPLIMENT!!!!!

I hope that peace and joy and trust and faith and hope and love permeate the entire holiday season for each and every one of you and for each and every person you hold dear. I pray that no one, NO ONE ANYWHERE, feel that they have to hide their faith, minimize their beliefs, or fear the reaction to their ‘glad tidings’……

You're welcome.... and, I wonder if this will have to be removed.... LOLOL.... as soon as I hit 'enter' I realized it'll probably get removed, NOT because of my greetings, but because posts have to be related to San Antonio....

Merry Christmas to my fellow SA mb members. As it this is my choice of celebration as 'Pops' so eliquently stated.

May I humbly add to the Christmas Cheer with a video that hit the spot for my family.
