Another year in which we can all say “Merry Christmas” without fear of persecution. Thank you Mr. President!!

It’s five days before Christmas and while the Stockings are not yet hung, I bet most of us are thankful that the “war on Christmas” has been placed on-hold, for another year.

So this week instead of promoting or dissecting some aspect of healthcare reform let’s look for aspects of 2018 and our own lives in America that bring peace and good will to man. Sorry that isn’t PC, should have said “good will to us all”.

I say Thank You to:

  • First Responders who run toward the crisis or danger while we run away. These brave men and women are better civil servants to our Nation than anyone else, especially politicians, can ever brag to be.
  • Military that in spite of a decline in funding and respect over the past 10 years continue to keep us save by stopping the dangers over there from reaching over here. I did not join the military when I was of age, a decision I regret to this day.
  • Law Enforcement officers on a daily bases as they walk or drive into unknown danger without hesitation and without the support of too many in our nation.
    We should all stand each time the National Anthem plays!
  • Teachers who signed up to help educate our future generations and continue do so even when facing the toughest environments. Wouldn’t it be easier to teach if English was the required language, parents would help from home, and Unions cared about kids more than self-preservation?
  • Moms for doing what they do to love their children even when we are unlovable. Giving birth might be the easy part for Moms these days as they too often take on the role of both parents and both bread winners in American homes. Moms are the first responders for our families and they need our help and thanks.
  • Our Churches that stand for the true Word of God and don’t give in to the secular-worldly efforts by too many to cast shadows upon what we all know is right.
  • Co-workers that come to work each day to work as a team toward similar goals of creating good products, good service, and respect for team.

Thank God, above all else, for His gift of the Lord Jesus Christ, for us all. God so love the world that He gave His only Son for us that we might have eternal life. To those of you who are believers you know that a relationship with Jesus Christ does give us an eternal home but also gives us a relationship throughout the year like none other possibly could.

That’s just a few.
To whom or what are you thankful that makes your life safer and better?

Love to hear from you and especially at Christmas we should know that we’re all in this together. 

Merry Christmas to all!! And to all, until next week.

    Great post Mark, and spot on in every way! I am thankful for the very same things but would add one more category to your list: Dads. I am thankful for Dads who do the hard work of being good role models not just for their sons, but also for their daughters of what a man should be. I am grateful for a godly dad who was far from perfect, but who not only taught me about God’s word, but always sought to live it in every day and every aspect of life. I am thankful for dads who stand strong when their families are struggling or falling apart emotionally, but who also aren’t afraid of being open about their own struggles and aren’t afraid of “falling apart” themselves. I am thankful that I was blessed to have a dad who has tried to be the kind of father to me that our Heavenly Father is to him. Merry Christmas and a blessed new year to you and yours.
