“It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by Dr. Seuss)
Peace, Hope and Love… these are all powerful realities that each of us longs for as human-beings. Frankly, I feel a bit like a sin-eater each week, as I sift through the garbage heaps of global insanity to see if there is any possible way we can make sense out of this melange together.
I, like you, long to live in a world where peace and hope can reside in the hearts of humanity so that we can live together in harmony as we walk together through this life. I’ve made no bones about my faith as a Christian. I’ve tried to keep as broad a mind as possible about historical events that have transpired and I have tried to offer as sound an analysis as I am able.
But as I write this Christmas letter to each of you, I want to reiterate that we have no hope, save that which was foreordained by God thousands of years ago. We have no peace, apart from the living person of Jesus Christ and we have no love, except through him who wears the name of love itself.
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas! May your Holidays be filled with the perfect trifecta of Hope, Peace and Love and may you and all your family be reminded this year amidst all the calamities in the world that only in Him we can find the true peace that each of us longs for.
More than Meets the Eye
