My regular readers will know that I have been having treatment for prostate cancer, which has gone well and next week I start a course of radiotherapy. In the last few months I have done a lot of thinking about my past and even my future, and I have come to the conclusion that life is too short for all the arguments and conflicts that seem to plague our society today.

We are rapidly aproaching Christmas, when we as Christians, celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He came to earth as a small baby and grew to be a life changing person, bringing peace and love to a troubled world and still is doing that today, 2000 years later. That is if we let him him come into our lives to be our Saviour.

Jesus can bring peace into this world if we let him, so why don’t you help him this Christmas. Forget petty arguments and do all that you can to reconcile yourself to those family members and friends that you have fallen out with, for whatever reason, and let the Prince of Peace come into your heart. If everyone did this throughout the world just think what a wonderful world this would be.

Have a Happy Christmas and may you feel the peace of the Christ child come into your heart.
