|FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH CARTHAGE, TX||
Merry Christmas. Such a simple phrase and yet it can mean so much when shared with those around you. The phrase speaks of joy, love and hope. It is merry for it is the season that reminds us of God’s gift, a gift of great joy as the angels proclaimed. It was certainly the gift of love, for God so loved the world that he gave us his only son. And as Paul reminds us this Christ is the hope of our glory. So in wishing someone a merry Christmas you have wished for them all the blessings of the season. So, by all means as you go about your activities this Christmas, wish as many folks as you can a very very merry Christmas.
