There is no question that this has been a difficult and emotionally draining first semester for many of our friends and peers.  Right now, many of us simply hurt and need time to heal. The Christmas Holidays give us that time. This year, more than most, it is important that you take time to rest, enjoy your family, read a book, be thankful for what you have, and remember those in need.

This is the last post of 2012. The blog will resume again on January 7, 2013. So until the New Year, to everyone in the LYS Nation, have a blessed, restful and safe Holiday Season! And I’ll close with a note the esteemed LYSer, The Ol’ Ball Coach, wanted me to share with you.

Merry Christmas to all and enjoy the many blessing the Lord has bestowed on us.
