Christmas Wishes

During this busy and quite oftentimes selfish season, have you thought about the thousands of military families who will be spending this Christmas without their moms and/or dads at home? These folks are making a tremendous sacrifice so that people like me and my family can stay safe at home. No matter what your feelings are concerning war and the deployment of our troops overseas, you should be grateful to these men and women for their loyalty.

This year, the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry is helping to grant the wishes of military families across the country, in an expression of thanks for their sacrifices, by giving gifts to the families who are left alone this Christmas. This is a place where you and I can work together by donating to a fund that is used to purchase "wished for" gifts for these families.

Christmas is not a time for us to look forward to all of the things that other people will buy for us. It's a time of sacrifice, a time to reflect on that ultimate gift, and sacrifice, that we received when Jesus Christ became God in flesh. He not only came here to live with sinful man, but He suffered a brutal death, a total sacrifice, so that He could rise again and proclaim to all that He'd paid the ultimate price for you, for me.

Is it too much to ask that we give to others just a little of what we have been given? The Heroes at Home Wish Registry is a cause that allows us to share. It also allows the families who give so much a chance to share a wish list of things they need, things they hope for. I urge you to visit the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry to see what it's all about and how you can help.
