This is the season to value, appreciate others

Holly Audette’s recent column about valuing others was excellent.

It is so easy, especially this time of year, to lose track of what is truly important when the Christmas rush kicks into high gear. Heaven knows I am guilty of this myself and just slowing down a bit sounds like a good idea. Yes, that is easer said than done but it is not impossible.

It doesn't take much effort to turn off the TV and turn on the radio. Even when we are shopping we can pause to listen to a song played by the store’s radio. We all must remember that it's called the Christmas season for a reason. That reason is Jesus — the best gift ever given to a hurting world.

It is a time when people matter a lot and politics matters very little. We can truly help others in a spirit that shows real love and care! To help accomplish the mission of that little baby that started out so little but gave so much. In the words of tiny Tim: " May God bless us-- every one!"
