Dearest OSLS families,
When I was a little girl, I can remember the hardest part about Christmas was the "waiting." I would ask almost daily "How many days until Santa Claus comes?" Of course, I had to go to bed early on Christmas Eve and alas the wait was over, and the best part was here- Christmas Day presents!
Now that I'm grown-up, things have changed. I no longer am anxious for "Santa Claus." I know full well that the Christmas season is short and passes us by so quickly, and THE REAL reason for Christmas. God loved us so much that He gave His only son to pay the penalty for our unworthiness. We are celebrating Jesus' birth at Christmas, the real reason for the season.
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.  And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:9-11 (ESV)
I wish you and your dear family every blessing for Christmas and peace and joy for 2019. Thank you all for all that you do for this blessed school in making Our Savior a welcoming and special place where God's love is celebrated.
