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.

Remembering 911: ‘Never Again’ begins with you

Patricia Kennedy BirdsallBy Patricia Kennedy Birdsall

When I think of 911, I have many memories … I can recall the shock, horror and sadness of the day — it is a permanent memory.

I also remember how our nation seemed united for several months after 911. All across the United States of America, churches, political parties, media, communities and neighbors came together, put aside any differences and were united in their sorrow, love and patriotism. We recognized evil as a nation and gained the power and resolve to fight it.
