This time of year is set aside to recognize the birth of Jesus who is the only Savior of the world. Those of us who are Christians should cherish the words Merry Christmas and let them be a reminder of the Grace of God. 

It seems to me that those of us who make up the Church are not speaking out loudly enough against those who are liberal and cry foul at words that have been used during this time of year for many centuries. The liberals cry foul against anything Christian and want more tolerance for everyone outside of Christianity. My fear for the future is that this will become an even bigger issue. As a Army Veteran who has been through Desert Storm and as a Christian Pastor I reserve the right to use the words Merry Christmas and exercise my freedom of speech. To be honest I have not heard one person get offended at those words in the last several years. The only ones crying foul are the hard line liberals of this country who seem to have an agenda against the Christian faith. This is a great time of year to remember the great love that God has for His creation. I remember His love and grace every time I hear the words Merry Christmas.
