Voice of Freedom

Some thoughts as we enter the holiday season. It is important to remember that not everyone is surrounded by large, wonderful families. Some of us have problems during the holidays and some of us are overcome with great sadness when we remember the loved ones who are not with us. And many people have no one to spend these times with, and are overcome by loneliness.

We all need caring, loving thoughts right now. May I ask my friends, wherever you might be, to give a moment of thoughts, support and prayers for all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues or worries of any kind. They just need to know that someone cares.

With that being said, until next week, stay well, stay warm, be kind to your neighbor and God bless!
