My Thursday Thoughts | Celebrating Christmas 2020

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, Christmas 2020 is a time to renew our hope, recapture our joy, regain our peace, and reignite our love because Christmas reminds us of the precious gift our God gave to us in Jesus Christ. It’s a beautiful time of year, even in what has surely been one of the most difficult years human kind has collectively known.

    I love you, brother. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    And if this was one of the hardest years in history, I’m the luckiest guy evah! All I had to do was sit on my couch and collect unemployment!
