The Thanksgiving Holiday which we celebrated last month was a time for families to thank God for the many blessings and provisions that He has provided. It’s a time when all of our cares and concerns can be put aside, allowing us to focus on the many good things in our lives. Unfortunately, a great deal of media focus during Thanksgiving is always put on what has become known as “Black Friday.” I have never really liked that label and even though the very popular sales are good for folks looking for bargains, and for the retailers, there should never be anything “black” about Thanksgiving. It should be a bright and joyful time for families. It also helps us get ready to celebrate the Christmas season.
The season of Advent started at our church on November 27th with Rick Morrison, a lawyer in our firm, his wife Estee and one of their children, Mere Grace, lighting the first Advent candle. Advent is the time during which the church celebrates the first coming of Jesus Christ and anticipates the second coming. It’s a very special time for all Christians. The celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ gives hope for all of us and provides a great ending to a year that has been filled with turmoil, strife and hurt around the world. But more importantly, the celebration gets us ready for the New Year.
All of us at Beasley Allen wish for all of you and your families a blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy, and productive New Year. I am looking forward to 2012 and hope you are, too. May God continue to bless you!
