To all the readers, comment writers, and contributors at AATW, merry Christmas! Whether you are with family or having a quiet Christmas, whether you are eating turkey or ham, whether you have been to church or are missing it this year, God’s love remains with you in the person of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Have a blessed Christmas, and remember that He was born for you, died for you, and stays with you: now and forever.

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

-Matthew 1:23

Whether you are excited about the new year or feel dread at what may lie ahead, remember that God goes through it all with you.

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 

Merry Christmas!
