Wow! This "Merry Christmas Week" has been full of surprises. Don't let "fake news" fool you. President Donald Trump keeps his promises: the trickle down effects of the new tax cuts will bless everyone! So on the national scene, the "Trump Tax Cut" victory is making headlines. Meanwhile, in my private life, the traditional home church (BBCC) Christmas Concert, special performances by grandchildren at Christmas concerts, a privately escorted tour of the Trump White House Christmas, and many activities with family and friends are delightful highlights for me this year.
While Christmas is always nostalgic for me because I miss my departed loved ones, and sad memories slip into the Christmas spirit, I am always revived by remembering "Granddaddy King's" words: "Thank God for what we have left."
If you are sad, lonely or hurting, please know that you are loved and be encouraged. God Loves you!
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, [Jesus] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
At the lovely East Colonnade hallway of the White House, I was joined by Fr. Frank Pavone and Janet Morana of Priests for Life and Dr. Day Gardner of National Black Prolife Union. We were surrounded by friends and happy White House staff!
FAKE NEWS lied again. The WHITE HOUSE decorations are stunningly beautiful!
Last week there was Rome.
This week it's Christmas at the White House. Meanwhile I'm praying, asking God to bless your house and the White House. On a side note, kudos to Senator Tim Scott for his successful support and advance work for the Trump Tax bill. Senator Scott's unwavering focus and remarkable grace and Statesmanship are worth positive mention. God knows Christmas (while not the only time) is the best season for Love and Forgiveness.
Along with my new cookbook, GG's Home for the Holidays Cookbook, and KING TRUTHS, a soon to be released new King Family Legacy Book, I've designed a Christmas Card Meme and recorded O HOLY NIGHT for you with the prayer that our Lord will bless your Christmas with God's peace, comfort and joy.
