Letters to the Editor

Reach out to those in needs

Christmastime is a season of joy for some, but others can find it sad and lonesome.

People are out of work; they need food and are depressed, and God is looking for his servants to help the oppressed.

We need to look at how many pretty packages are wrapped under the tree, but we must understand that God expects us to share with others unselfishly.

We need to look around and see the needy whom God has placed near us, because loving them and sharing with them is an absolute must.

Circumstances can never take the joy of the Lord that is in our hearts, because Jesus will meet all our needs, and he will never depart.

I have found that it is better to give than to receive, and we are to claim the promises of God and believe.

That precious little baby who was born in a stable one night is God's son, who is, was, and will always be the light.

He never sleeps or slumbers, and he has planned all our days. He is so awesome and good, and he is the only one worthy of praise.

Be happy in everything and trust God to provide for you, and experience the joy of giving this Christmas that will last the whole year through.

Note: In August, I fell at school while I was helping my husband get his room ready for the academic year and broke my left femur. I also sustained a brain injury. In September, I had another accident, breaking my tibia and sustaining yet another brain injury. My doctor told me there was a good chance that I would never write again. Indeed, I couldn't write a complete thought at the time of these injuries. My writing was a gift that I was given seven years ago. I never plan what I write. The Holy Spirit pours his words into my mind. God is good! And I know now that he will never revoke this gift that he has so generously given me.

As this is one of the first documents I have produced since my accident, I wish to praise his holy name for restoring my talent.
