Happy Holiday Greetings from Us!


December 25th post – by Gayle Bartos-Pool

People celebrate Christmas in many ways. Some decorate their homes like a Macy’s window on steroids, others keep a lower profile and enjoy the colors, sounds, and smells in their own quiet way. Some can’t wait for the season to be over. As for me, any time people make an effort to make others happy and to enjoy life themselves is a holiday. Christmas is and should be a time to reflect on the Gift of Life we have all been given. You can’t return it to the store if you don’t like it, but you can make it fit by being the very best you can be and showing others their gift is pretty special as well. Then you will realize Christmas is every day.

Merry Christmas.

First, I am a believer in Jesus Christ, so my views and opinions are filtered through what God's Word says and I believe. I'm a wife, a mom, a grandma and now a great grandma. I write articles and reviews, and I dabble in short fiction. I enjoy living near the ocean, doing gardening (for beauty and food) and traveling - in other countries, if possible. My heart is for Christian missions, and I'm compiling a collections of Missionary Kids' stories to publish. (I also like kittens and cats and reading mysteries.)

  1. Have yourselves a merry little Christmas. Or a great big one. It all started in a stable with the birth of a baby boy (who happened to be the Son of God) but all the heavenly host came to celebrate and sing praise, with “Peace on earth, and good will towards man.”

    Where ever we are across the country – or across the globe – I feel so blessed to have this blog as a way to connect and reach out to each other and to other writers and readers. Aren’t we lucky to have this method to connect, even if we are far apart?

    What an amazing decade this has been for all of us: Lots of laughter, some tears, many prayers, great accomplishments and – most of all – such good and patient friends to share this life with.
    Big hugs and loads of love to everyone!
