Memories of the times we've shared are always very dear, but they mean a lot especially when Christmas time is here. And even grater than the joy that comes from memories of the past is the love that comes to us, the kind of love that lasts.

The heavenly chorus sang, the angel proclaimed the birth of Jesus saying, "I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people!" Our Christmas letters are our hearts' carols proclaiming, "Joy to the world!" We've made it though another year, and life is good!

Christmas is here, spread the cheer, "Jesus is born for a humanity searching for freedom and peace." Sure, this is a beautiful thing, because love is able to transcend everything and anything and love is the quintessence of life. "Love is God, God is Love." Albert Einstain.

Wishing you peace in your heart and happiness in your home this Christmas and throughout the New Year.
