Dugger Report 12.26.2013

So often, amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it is easy to forget the reason for season.  Just as soon as we finish our Thanksgiving meals the madness of “Black Friday” is upon us. The next few weeks become a blur of frantic, last minute gift purchasing and numerous Christmas celebrations; leaving little time to take pause and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.  Yet no matter how many gifts are waiting under the tree on Christmas morning, you can’t truly have Christmas without Christ.
Over 2000 years ago, we received the ultimate gift.  This gift came in the form of a baby boy born into the humblest of surroundings. Yet, from his humble beginnings this child grew into a man who brought a message of love for all, giving to those in need, and sacrificing everything for others.
As we gather together with loved ones this Christmas let us not forget the example of the birthday boy who has given us the true reason for the season.  It is not merely about the presents under the tree or remembering to leave cookies and milk out for Santa. Rather, Christmas is about the love shared by family; the spirit of giving; the willingness to lend a hand to someone in need.
May God bless you and grant you and your family a wonderful Christmas!
