Reflections From the Chaps ~ December 13, 2010

Chaplain’s Reflection: About this time of the year, and leading up to the big day, it’s all too common to see everyone scurrying around, trying to find that perfect Christmas gift for their loved ones. Everything is becoming so commercialized, even the Japanese have their “Happy Christmas” signs out in the Fall! But making the challenge even more difficult, it just seems that everyone already has everything now days, except of course for the bigticket items like the Mercedes! What is a person to do? Well, I found some pretty neat suggestions the other day that might just catch people off guard. They’re a bit hard to wrap, but maybe if we can gently prepare them some place deep within our hearts, I think they will be the most beautiful gifts we will ever give to our loved ones, mankind and to the one who started this precious day some 2,000 years ago. God bless you all, as you start reflecting on your Silent Night. Food 4 Thought: “Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” – Oren Arnold
