Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from all of us at LynnRMitchell.com

Christmas 12 lanternThe reason for the season….

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.” Luke 2:8-20

The true meaning of Christmas … a time for the Christian world to pause and celebrate the birth of the son of God.

The optimism of America after 9/11

9-11 2By Lynn R. Mitchell

This morning Donald Williams, who was a guest poster yesterday on LynnRMitchell.com (see 9/11: Never forget America under attack, those who perished, and the heroes of the day), posted on Facebook the optimism of America after the terrorism attacks of 9/11:

“….on the Twelfth of September, this photograph and these words always mean so much as we remember yesterday and look toward the future of our nation…….

‘We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail’ – President George W. Bush”

Yesterday we remembered. Now we must never forget.

9/11: Never forget America under attack, those who perished, and the heroes of that day

Donald Williams 3By Donald C. Williams

I cannot remember what the weather was like on a single other day 13 years ago. But I remember it on this day. It was warm and the sunny sky was a deep blue. Like all of you, I remember exactly where I was that morning … what I was doing.

Then it happened. And like you, I saw the first glimpses of America under attack. The horrific images are seared in our memories.
