Happy Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day celebrating with their families or friends. This is the first Thanksgiving with my sister home from Afghanistan, so I know there are many out there who have loved ones estranged, far away, gone, or otherwise unable to be home for Thanksgiving or Hanukkah. I offer a prayer for those who have loved ones away: while this time may be a time of sorrow, I ask the Lord of Lights that He provide you with peace in the dark times; joy in the sorrow; and hope for the season.

I hope that each of you take the time to reflect on the reasons for the season: the thankfulness of Thanksgiving; the re-dedication and hope of Hanukkah; and the hope that we always find in the darkness if we look.
