As you enjoy the holiday season and prepare to celebrate the most holy birth of Jesus Christ, reflect on others that may not be as fortunate as you. Remember those who are ill, those who are home bound, those who are weak, lonely, or depressed. Reflect on the disadvantaged, and those lacking sufficient means, those who are disadvantaged, and those who are lacking “joy”. Find a way to help someone. Pray for them and be a “ joy” to them. Then look in the mirror and thank God for your “JOY”.
May you have a Blessed and Joyous Christmas and Delightful New Year!
