I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. It seems to be one of the busiest times of the year.
We get caught up with the food, the parties, the shopping, the lights and decorations, the presents, and family and friends. It can get a little chaotic and stressful sometimes but even though all these things are good, it's not what Christmas is all about. In all the business, I encourage you to take a few moments and remember what this season is all about.
Christmas is a time when we celebrate the most important birth in human history, the birth of Jesus Christ, the Ultimate Gift. He was born of a virgin in the most humble surroundings. He was the Son of God, came from His home in heaven and lived as a man. He showed us how to live by showing love and compassion for our fellow man. He encountered the same temptations we do but He did not succumb. He performed many miracles like turning water into wine, healing the sick, setting free those who were oppressed. He was ridiculed, arrested, beaten, shed His blood, died and rose from the dead so that we may live.
So when you're unwrapping your gifts Christmas morning remember that Ultimate Gift. That's the least we can do.
For your enjoyment, a couple of videos.. Have a very Merry Blessed Christmas!

Western farmers are finally free of the CWB after almost 70 years. Bill C-18, the bill to give marketing freedom received royal assent last night.
The GG obviously did not heed Bob Rae's letter not to give royal assent to the bill.
Shortly after the vote, Gov. Gen. David Johnston gave the bill royal assent. Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae and CWB chairman Allen Oberg had both written to Johnston asking him not to give the bill royal assent while the courts are considering the legality of the bill.The CWB has even dropped it's court challenge for an injunction.
