~Please Don't Do This!~

At this time of year, I know we all get very busy.  But I have one Christmas request that I wish we could all give to one another.  One simple wish....... Please don't take 'Christ' out of 'Christmas'!  Some shorten the word with 'x-mas'.  This is wrong!  What you are really doing when you write Christmas this way is replacing 'Christ', the real reason for the season, with an 'x'.  Do you really mean to do that?  Especially at this time of year, and the condition in which our country finds itself at this present time, we cannot afford to forget Christ.  Put Him back into the center of your lives, put Him back in the center of our families, and most importantly, make Him the focal point of all we do and why we do it. As a people, we will be blessed, and we will be humbled for making Him the center of our celebrations! 

Merry Christmas and  may Blessings be Abundant to You!
