Three days before Christmas, 2016
I love Christmas! The hymns we sing, the celebrations we attend, that extra bit of happy in the faces of people you see when you wish them a merry Christmas or happy holiday. No wonder you’re such a jolly old elf!
I’ve spent some time thinking about what to write in a letter to such a venerable gift-giver as yourself. What should I ask for? What could I ask for that wouldn’t seem self-centered and—well—petty, especially in light of all that’s going on in the world?
Since I’m writing to a deadline—Christmas is coming, after all–I’ll give it my best try. I hope you’ll forgive me if it isn’t entirely right.
I ask for peace, for everyone, everywhere!
I ask for love for those who don’t know its power.
I ask for joy for those who hurt during this beautiful season.
I ask for hope for all who labor day after day to make their life and the lives of their family better.
And I ask for a miracle for those who need it most!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE PETTICOATS AND PISTOLS READERS OUT THERE. MAY 2017 BE THE BEST YEAR YOU CAN MAKE IT!
