Merry Christmas to one and all from the Doug for President Campaign. All of us here hope that you are able to celebrate with those you love.
To those of you who are celebrating without your loved ones we say this:
If you are serving our country overseas: Thank you. Our earthly peace is bought with your sacrifice. May the Prince of Peace reign over all of us, that you may have safety.
If you are protecting our safety here: Thank you, too. Without you, all of the travelers would be at much greater risk. Thank you for your service.
If you are grieving: the Baby born in Bethlehem wept with His friends, and He weeps with you as well. May His peace strengthen your hearts.
If you are separated by the miles, by walls, borders, or bars: Unto us a Son is given, and He is: Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. He is Immanuel, God with us. I hope that brings you a measure of peace even with the distances between you.
If you are separated from family by your own stubbornness or pride: Get over it, and go love your family. Life's too short for that nonsense. Apologize, forgive, be forgiven. Don't waste another day, especially this one.
The occasional thoughts of an ordinary man serving an extraordinary God. Come with me as we learn, teach, and laugh along the way.
