Its Christmastime for all APC supporters in Diaspora

As the APC-NA “Power House” is in the preparation for their National Delegate Convention in Ohio next year, Christians and other APC supporters in diaspora are gaining momentum in readiness to celebrate yet another Christmas to honor the birth of their Lord Jesus Christ. I want APC supporters to remember that this Christmas, is a time to focus on the many blessings in our lives. Each day in this world, it should be a day to focus on these things we hold dearly that the Lord has brought to us but Christmas time is especially good for bringing these things that we should always notice to the forefront of our minds and our thoughts.

What I knew at the time when I was growing up, is still the same. Christmas time is all about giving and not only in the way of handing out material presents to one another that we purchase from the many stores, we also have to choose from those gifts but it’s mainly a time for love, compassion and caring. The most important things like post cards, clothes, luxurious gifts and etc, are given out to someone who needs to be listened to or a coat for a small child who is need of one. Handing out gifts and giving out to others, can be done best by giving someone a smile when they are feeling down or encouragement to get past the gloom they might, feeling in order to stand tall and move onward with joy.

Traditionally, Christmas season, giving can mean giving a home to a small animal that otherwise would be left alone in the cold and miserable out in the elements with nobody to cares. All these traditional gestures and good things actually make a difference in the world and they might not individually heal all that needs to be healed but each offering of kindness and compassion would lift the spirit of the season. Giving away gifts, will furthers the cause of bringing true love and peace to all mankind around the world, especially within our political parties which are badly in need of these. A few material gifts are fine and are especially welcome from the children and neighbors.  But among the joy of the material during Christmas, it should also be a lesson that the best and most important gifts should come from inside, a given heart and soul from one human being to another.

At the time when Jesus Christ was born, the three WISE MEN were guided by the star of Bethlehem to the manger to witness the miracle of the birth of Jesus.  Let’s these WISE MEN also use that same light that shines in us from Jesus to guide our hearts, to do good deeds and to make another human being feel special and cared for, in the most important ways by the power of love and mercy.

Fellow Sierra Leoneans of our beloved APC supporters around the world, let the lesson of Joseph and Mary reminds you for their being turned away from the Inn in Bethlehem. Please, let’s pray:  

Oh God, Inspire us as APC supporters not to be turned away from by someone or something that may be in need of our help and our light to shine on us. Let’s the power of the human spirit and the human heart work wonders and the pureness of a kind act to turn wrong into right. This holiday season let that same pureness flow from within your heart and into anothers and let’s makes Jesus Christ proud to be our Father and our Lord by our actions that are inspired by his love for us. May all of you and your family have a very blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year and may the Light of the Lord always shine upon you and carry you in your time of need. May God bless Sierra Leone, our leaders and the APC Party. Amen!

See you all at the convention hall in Columbus Ohio.
