Christmas wishes 2011

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

I wish more people could experience faith in a supreme being and openly practice their faith, attending services regularly and recognize that only through our trust in God will we overcome much of what troubles our world today.

I wish more folks of good fortune would share some of what they have with others less fortunate. We all witness those who give from the heart regularly even at times when they don’t have much. Just imagine a world full of people helping each other.

I wish our government and all governments could put aside their bickering and seek compromise for the people they govern by finding the common ground and recognizing the important leadership roles they play in advancing society.

I wish for those unemployed to find employment in fields they find rewarding. Equally important I wish for all those currently employed to value their careers and utilize a strong work ethic in the tasks they perform, understanding that the job they do is a direct reflection on the person they are. I also wish that employers would place greater value on the efforts of those they employ.

I wish for Christmas 2011 to be another turning point in a world that seems to have lost its way. Despite remarkable technology, advancements in the medical and scientific fields we need the saving grace of the miracle child born so many years ago.

Many may say the wishes above are nothing but fanciful dreams, but not one of those fanciful dreams could not become reality if each of us were to embraces them and make them our own. It’s amazing what a little hope, faith and love can do in your life if you let them in and share with them with all that you come in contact with. And let’s face it, with all of our running around, Christmas preparations and gifting this season at the end of the day wouldn’t you rather trade all those gifts under this year’s tree for any of the wishes listed above? The key to granting those wishes starts in each of our hearts and they are never more open than at this time of the year.

On behalf of the Denton Publications staff and our families I would like to wish you and your family a very joyous and safe holiday, a prosperous new year and for my last wish, that you are granted all of your Christmas wishes. God bless us one and all.
