Christmas Wish
by Myra Scovel

God give you blessings at Christmas time;
Stars for your darkness, sun for your day,
Light on the path as you search for the Way,
And a mountain to climb.

God grant you courage this coming year,
Fruit for your striving, friends if you roam,
Joy in your labor, love in your home,
And a summit to clear.

  1. To All My Democrat Friends:
    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2009, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

    To all my Republican Friends:
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    AMEN!, and to all a good night. MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone( including the PM of Wesley Chapel) and a Happy New Year from your loving pig, Pierre.

  3. Christmas 2008
    This Christmas, as in Christmas past, I think of 1944 and Camp Sutton in Monroe. Many local people do not even know there was an Army training camp here then or that there was a Prisoner of War barracks there. Many of the p.o.w.’s then worked on local farms and were known to local citizens. As Christmas Eve arrived the choir from Central United Methodist Church went caroling and stopped outside the walls of the p.o.w. barracks to sing to those inside that they could not see. When they finished singing “Silent Night” there came from inside those walls, in German, the voices of those p.o.w. singing the same song. This is what Christmas will always be about to me!

  4. To Mark T.
    When you wake up on Christmas morning and quote another source word for word and pass it off as your own, which you clearly do above, then I think the message of Christmas for you was lost long ago. When you tie your corruption to a larger group, Republicans, then you are obviously attempting to show that you have little respect for them also. I will say thank you for not including we Democrats in your little scheme, and in fact, letting the world know that we are at odds to your corruption.

  5. To Aubrey M

    Lighten up. That quote I posted is so old that I’m sure everyone has already seen it and would have gladly given credit if I even knew where it came from. And maybe you should attend to your own party’s corruption before worrying about someone elses.

  6. Once again we must all take time to recognize the hypocrisy of Mr. Moore as he has chided Mark T for his recitation of democratic politically correct holiday greeting. Do tell Mr. Moore, if this bothers you so, why then did the weekly speech text rip offs by your standard bearer Obama not concern you during the campaign? Could it be you are simply part of the “do as I say, not as I do” rot that permeates the fabric of the Democratic Party? Your attempts to cast disparagement as a means of subterfuge are both comical on the surface as well as a deeply troubling glimpse of what is to come from the followers of the Obama Doctrine.
