The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All!
During this busy Christmas Season, please pause a moment and give grateful thanks to the many husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and friends serving in our nationís armed forces throughout the Middle East and other foreign lands. Also say a special prayer in memory of the nine brave Charleston firefighters lost so tragically on the evening of June 18th.
As we gather together in joyful celebration with family, friends and love ones, pause a moment and remember the many families whose gatherings will not be as joyful, but solemn and muted by empty hearts and a chair at their tables, never to be filled again.
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 among 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 good 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 angle a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luke 2:8-14, The Holy Bible, King James Version
