Voice of Freedom

May the joy and love that this special season brings to each of us continue throughout the New Year. It’s a time to think of others, and to remember past Christmases and those who are no longer with us in body but are truly with us in spirit.  Let’s just remember to keep Christ in Christmas.

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

Please notify me if you have anything of interest you would like to share with my readers.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
