Wishing you love, joy and peace

love - that warm fuzzy feeling, good will to our fellow man (at least for a day).

joy - the faces of children as they find Santa has been,

peace - families putting aside their differences and gathering because it's Christmas, the expression of a desire for and end to war

LOVE - the unconditional love of our Lord, who came to earth to die for us, not because we deserved it, but because he loves us and wants us to be in a relationship with him.

JOY - not the feeling we have that lasts but a moment, when things are good and we feel happy, but a deep seated, unshakable joy that comes only from God, that lasts through the bad times and holds us when we suffer.

PEACE - not just peace between our fellow man but the amazing miraculous peace of knowing God, that he made the bridge for us to cross over that we would no longer be God's enemies but his friends.  Peace with God that brings God's peace in our hearts.

While it is wonderful to experience the human versions of love, joy and peace, this Christmas, and every day thereafter I wish you the LOVE, JOY and PEACE that can only come from God.
