Our Christmas Dinner Was for Two in Germany

We are far from Texas and our family in the States, but we were able to share with them on this day.  Always I have enjoyed preparing Christmas dinner for family, but today it was just the two of us, and it was very special still.  Some of our recent Christmases have been spent apart because of the duties of war which are required by some of the citizens of our country.  Today as we enjoyed the blessings of being together and sharing this season of celebration, I thought of those who this year are apart from their own loved ones.  I especially considered those military families who this week experienced the receiving of the news that their own loved ones will never again be home for Christmas.  May God be with them, and all those who stand in harm's way tonight for American, and good people the world over, and may the true joy of Christmas be made known to each of you.  Merry Christmas from our house to yours.
