Continue the LOVE Throughout The Year

We're having a Merry Christmas and want to extend the happiness and goodwill throughout the year! Is that possible? We know we can do this by sharing the Love that we feel each and every day of the new year. Our scheme is to sponsor a child through Save the Children. We browsed through the Save the Children Chrismas catalog
and decided to sponsor a child for one year! So we can share the Love for one whole year in this way. We have chosen to "educate a girl for a year". This gift will provide needed books, teacher's training and educational materials for the span of one year. Educating a girl child through Save the Children is significant because an educated girl will postpone marriage and childbearing. They will often provide better nutrition and education for their own children. Maybe you would like to share other ways to extend the spirit of this season.

The Messiah. . .

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace...
Isaiah 9:6
On Christmas Eve we rejouce because we know the reason for the season. It is wonderful to celebrate the holiday with understanding. The Messiah arrived just as it had been promised. He was born to save and redeem our lives because of love. We must share that love throughout the entire year, not just during this season. Let's perprtuate the feelings and actions of love each day of the new year.
