Season’s Greetings



I love this time of year. It truly is a series of seasons in which we have opportunities to give greetings to those around us. What greetings are you giving?

Thanksgiving is an awesome time for greeting. First, we greet our Creator, because we are thankful for life, abundance, fullness, and joy! Second, we give greetings of thanksgiving to those around us at work and play. We are thankful for real relationships and all that we are blessed to have in this great country where we are privileged to live.

Christmas is the season’s most wonderful time of expressing great tidings or greetings to everyone you meet! “Merry Christmas, Peace and Good Will to Men, Blessings from our House to Yours” are all heartfelt expressions of love and warmth on greeting cards and letters, as well as salutations in passing. Wow, what a wonderful time of the year! Greetings announce the birth of the Savior of the World! Declarations of the Good News, salvation for all men, have come and are available to all!

A New Year is a time to greet one another in the fresh opportunities of a new beginning! This nation and each¬†citizen living here should begin the new year of 2017 with great expectancy! With jubilee, we celebrate the New and build an expectation of Better — a better life, a better job, a new chance to improve and excel¬†in this brand new year! Perhaps, it will be the best year ever! Perhaps, this will be the Year of Jubilee where we are set free of bondages and disappointments we have faced in the past. Be free and free indeed! Happy New Year!

In the past great American leaders in our nation have greeted each new year in, and they blessed it to be the best year ever! As new leaders emerge, I pray that the tradition continues to the next generation. Be the person that God has endowed you to be in 2017! Greetings to you as you participate in the most exciting days that have ever existed on this earth! These days belong to you!

Season’s Greetings!
