Well, I'm signing off for the weekend. Have a very merry, safe, and loving Christmas holiday.
Remember one thing above all others: God is with us. Immanuel. So, if you're feeling a little isolated, hurt, forgotten, remember that Jesus was sent into the world, so that God could have a relationship with YOU.
You are loved.
See you kids next week. We'll run through the usual end-of-the-year lists.
Peace and grace.
UPDATED: Crap, sorry, didn't mean to be offensive or non-inclusive.
Wanted to include the other major celebration.
So, Daryl, Happy Jesus-palooza.
(For you non-celebrants, that's pronounced "hey-soos-pa-looz-a". Just so you know. Still confused? Ask me sometime. It's not that interesting, really.)
