I woke up this Christmas morning to a warm message from Vice President-Elect Mike Pence.
It’s so perfect I just had to share it with you! Pence reminds us to stop and appreciate God’s gifts, saying, “I will do as I have always done…. I will pause and reflect on God’s blessings in my life: my wonderful family, my faith and the opportunities I have been given to serve this great nation.”
Isn’t it lovely to hear a public servant thankful for his opportunity to serve We the People? Clinton and her running mate would never have said this.
One of my favorite moments in Pence’s message is where he reminds us to reach out to those who are a little lonely this holiday.
For those of us blessed with large, happy families, it can be hard to remember that those who have recently lost loved ones can feel quite sad during Christmas.
Pence says, “it is also good to remember that to reach out to a neighbor who might be spending this Christmas with a heavy heart with a helping hand, a warm meal or a word of encouragement can mean just as much to brighten this special time of year.”
We patriots will surely want to keep in the forefront of our prayers the families who have lost their loved one in the line of duty. Of course this includes our military members, as Mike Pence reminds us. He and his wife are parents of a Marine.
This year, there are also a large number of police families to keep in our thoughts who have lost their courageous family members to the senseless violence egged on by Black Lives Matter.
Of course, it was thrilling to read the last two line’s of Pence’s statement: “From our family to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah and every blessing for a healthy and prosperous New Year.”
I’m sure you noticed the Merry Christmas in there. What a change of pace from Obama and Biden, right? Pence even puts Liberals who pretend to be worried about diversity to shame, including those of the Jewish faith in his greeting. And he includes the New Year, which every American shares.
Merry Christmas to you too Pence family, and to you, patriots!
