A Blessed Christmas - 2007

But the response of The Magi – the Wise Men – through their
suffering for the Christ Child is the perfect laudable example of
accepting the Savior. It is imperative that we keep Christ and His
interest in our Christmas Celebrations.

New Year - 2008.
May God bless us all.

learned from the day from which we started hearing about
