Christmas will soon be here,and here are my thoughts about it. Read on to find out more.

Merry Christmas to Everyone

I believe that our Lord was born in a stable, and that he came to save us from the sins of the world. and I also believe in treating others in a way I would want them to treat me. I have no time in my life for hate or animosity towards others. At this time of year particularly, Christmas should be about love, and caring about others.

There may be people in life that test our patience at times, unreasonable, spiteful and deceitful, but we have to experience trials and tribulations to really appreciate what we have in life. Most of us have kind and loving families, and the pleasure we get from coming together to celebrate Christmas is immeasurable.

If there is someone in your family who is really difficult to get on with, think about how unhappy they must be to behave like that, and try to make them happy.

It is a time when people spend money

If you go to the shops you can see people buying presents, all anxious to choose something special for those they love, because giving is much more pleasurable than receiving. To see the happiness on someone's face when they get something they probably couldn't afford, is heartening.

We may not have much money to spend, but we can all be rich with love towards one another, love costs nothing except time and effort. But it means everything. Let's not forget the lonely and the bereaved this Christmas, it will be a hard time for them, Then the homeless people, who crouch in doorways with the wind and rain beating down, whilst we enjoy the comfort of our warm homes

Everyone deserves a Merry Christmas

All these people deserve a Merry Christmas, there are organisations set up to try and help them, and when I think about them, I try not to take my life for granted. I am not rich, but I try to make a small donation when my funds allow it.

There are good people who give up their time on Christmas day to provide a hot meal for the needy, a place to sit and eat it, a blanket to keep them warm, and that is true Christmas Spirit.

My wishes this Christmas

I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas, my friends and family, and everyone out there, may you all have peace and happiness. Forgive your enemies, make them your friends, show love towards each other, especially to those who don't inspire love.

I am remembering all those now departed to another life, some of you went much too soon, you are always in my heart, and the memories will last forever. Christmas time is the hardest time without you, but I am sure one day we will meet again.

Some of us have had a tough 2015, let's look to the future, and may 2016 be a good year for everyone.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE XXX

Endless pains.
I don't know why God took his
life from me suddenly. Can I meet him in another world? His death just kills me, how I need to be loved and cared! Last year, I'm such a happy bride. Only one year after marriage, my dear husband just passed away suddenly. I really don't know why.

may God bless my husband's soul! Let him be peace! I know he has just become Saint John in the heaven! Only God knows how kindhearted and excellent my husband was! He was always willing to help others, treating everyone equally, he id a real hero, a buddha, a saint! I want to tell the whole world how I love him and how he deserves being memorized and respected forever,

The world without you becomes so lonely and hollow for me, although for others, the would is the same wonderful as before. But it's just like a desert without you! I can't be happy forever! Maybe it is because I just obtained the most beautiful love in the world so that God begins to envy it, too.

ginaque I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I feel your pain. My husband was John, and he also died without warning. It is so difficult to comprehend why this happens. All I can say to you is it will get easier in time. I do hope you have your family around you at such a sad time, I am sending you my love and hugs, and may God bless you.

Oh, dear Carol, you mean your huaband's name is also John? My husband should die of a sudden heart attack. Before his death, I'm always an atheist. But now I begin to believe in the fate or God. We really can't control our fate. It seems all things are arranged in advance.

Maybe we should really believe in God, we realize all people just finish his trip in the world, our heart will become peaceful and merry.
Merry Christmas! Thank you so much. Pray for my husband's soul!

Yes I think God helped me cope with my loss, without him I would not have got through it. Take care.
