Too many people believe Christmas is about presents. . . well it is, but not the ones we find wrapped under the tree from Santa. It's about gifts from God - like love, happiness, concern for others, Jesus. This year I was able to give the gift of celebrating Christmas to Iraqi Christians who had never had the freedom to do so before.

Although it was really tough being away from my family, and I know it was equally as difficult for them (our first Christmas in 7 years apart), I believe it brings new meaning to what Christmas is all about. I wish more Christians would just quit shopping at Christmas and show retailers and Americans that the spirit of Christmas is in the heart.

When you reflect on the wonderful gifts you got this year, take a moment to reflect on this: men and women sacrifice their lives DAILY for you to enjoy the comforts of your life at home. Please PRAY for us!
