GIVING HOMECOMING A NEW MEANING

Dec 20th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Family members, grandchildren, aunts and uncles, grandparents are pointed in the direction of home as the Holiday season nears. With a major winter’s storm on the heels of many, there is, however, impending difficulty awaiting those who travel. Not to be discouraged, these hearty souls anticipate arrival to a warm hearth, genuine embraces, and the reunion celebration only this season can bring.

Its a different holiday this year. Its meaning has been deepened by events that have shaken the souls and spirits of thousands upon thousands. It is not quite being taken for granted, as often in the past. Its profound and moving emotion has reached into the soul and heart. Recognizing the value of family and friends and the fleeting way of life, we have heard the echoes of gun shots seeking to drown out the whispers of love.
