As we prepare for another year to end, we also prepare, first, to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of Christians. No, not all of us, but the majority of people in America, who are acknowledged Christians.
I guess what bothers me is the fact that the few others, hence not the majority, are trying to push this wonderful time out of being celebrated openly, as it has been since Jesus was born. Why? Why do non-Christians begrudge us our worshiping God's son? We do not try to rob them of their religion. If we go to a Muslim church, we do not expect them to worship Jesus, and that is okay with us. If we attend a Chinese or Japanese church, we do not expect to hear Christian Christmas carols sung. Why do other religions, and non-religious people, heathens, whoever else complains, want to make us go underground? We have been founded as a Christian nation by our forefathers, and yet, now we even have a confused president who says, openly, "The United States is not a Christian nation." What??? Since when? Give me, and all other Christians in this country, aka the majority, a break! That statement sure did nothing to endure our new leader to me, folks!
Anyway, Christmas is the birthday of the Son of God, and I will be celebrating it with joy, as usual. I want to pray with my brothers and sisters in Christ for a blessed year ahead and give thanks for all my blessings this past year. I want to wish every Christian the peace and joy of knowing Jesus, and may their hearts be filled with the warmth of His love in the year ahead. I do not force my religion on anyone, and I would appreciate it if no one would try to force me from practicing mine! I heard a man say, just recently, that if you do not like or agree with Christianity in America, then maybe you should buy a ticket and get out of the country! Amen to that. We are The Land of the Free, and The Home of the Brave, One Nation, Under God, With Liberty and Justice For All. And you may be sure, In God We Trust! So, if that doesn't suit your way of thinking, please go somewhere in this world where you won't be treated so well. Meanwhile, like I said earlier, do not try to take our right to worship Jesus away from us, because we Christians are a gentle bunch of loving people, but, and I mean this, we are NOT going to give up our celebration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! And that is that! So, get used to our Mangers and Crosses, Christmas plays and parties, lots of people gathering to church on Christmas eve and morning, and singing of the carols we all grew up with, and our wishing each other "Merry Christmas", and just get over it! Please!
So, again, I wish Merry Christmas to all Christians and God Bless Us, Everyone. Because this grateful Christian ain't done yet!
