At this time of year, we gather with friends and loved ones around our most treasured beliefs and traditions. We thank God for the blessings He has given and the freedom we still have to enjoy this season of lights, gifts and the celebration of Christ’s birth.
During this joyous season, I hope you’ll take a moment to remember our soldiers overseas and those who are dealing with long recoveries from the wounds of war. Earlier this month I had the privilege to visit our Hoosier soldiers serving in Afghanistan, and it was a good reminder that there is no harder time for our troops abroad then at the holidays. As we pray for our families and those close to us, let’s remember those who are even now, sacrificing so much, that we might continue to observe the traditions we enjoy in liberty and peace.
For Christy, Payton, and Preston, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Stutzman family.
