I'll Be Home for Christmas

I'll be home for Christmas;
You can count on me.
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents on the tree.

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love-light gleams.
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams.

The 1943 Bing Crosby Christmas song strikes me as appropriate today. When Crosby recorded it for the movie of the same name, it instantly became a hit, striking a chord with soldiers and civilians alike who were dealing with the strain, separation and sadness of World War II.

Many are dealing with same strain, separation and sadness today, sacrificing just as those who came before them so the rest of us can be home for Christmas. But sometimes, people do come home for Christmas, and not just in their dreams.

My friend Patrick came home from his second tour in Iraq this week, just in time for Christmas. Because I've written about Patrick and his wife Sherri several times before, I thought I'd let y'all in on the good news, too. I know Patrick and Sherri would be the first to say we should be worrying and praying for all those who don't get to come home for this holiday instead of them, but I just wanted to say thank you to them and all those like them who fight and sacrifice to keep us safe.

May the Lord and His peace be with them today, all over the world. Welcome home, Patrick!


Merry Christmas, everyone!

  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
