On this Christmas Eve, I want to wish all my subscribers and my readers a Wonderful Christmas.
If you are with loved ones tomorrow, I hope all are careful about the virus. If you are alone as many are, celebrate this special day as you wish.
I am with my sister, Gay, and her husband, Stu, who always celebrate Christmas by decorating the house, putting up a beautiful tree, and by attending church services. This year we will attend by watching the service from Alpharetta Presbyterian Church on TV. I will open the emails from my pastor who sends out the liturgy to members of our very small church in Hayesville. He also gives us a link to beautiful and moving music.
Two family members plan to take part in live nativity scenes even though the weather is dreadful.
Gay and I will skip the drive-through for this event because we hear that the rain we have had all day could become black ice tonight.
My greatest hope is that 2021 will be a year of healing for all of us. Love thy neighbor even if you have different beliefs, different opinions, and different lifestyles.
To help the healing, please follow all the guidelines that are proven to prevent COVID 19. Remember your family, your friends, and your neighbors need your protection. Be sure to get vaccinated when the opportunity comes. I know I will.
I look forward to taking more online writing courses and teaching online in January. No matter how much we think we know, we can always learn more.
My best wishes to you for a healthy and happy new year.
