    1. Last Christmas we were thinking about all the things we didn't have; this
    Christmas we are thinking about all the things we do have.

    2. Last Christmas we were placing wreaths on the doors of our homes; this
    Christmas we are placing wreaths on the graves of our heroes.

    3. Last Christmas we were letting our Sons play with toy guns; this
    Christmas we are teaching them that guns are not toys.

    4. Last Christmas we were counting our money; this Christmas we are
    counting our blessings.

    5. Last Christmas we paid lip service to the real meaning of the holidays;
    this Christmas we are paying homage to it.

    6. Last Christmas we were lighting candles to decorate; this Christmas we
    are lighting candles to commemorate.

    7. Last Christmas we were digging deep into our bank accounts to find money
    to fly home for the holidays; this Christmas we are digging deep into our
    souls to find the courage to do so.

    8. Last Christmas we were trying not to let annoying relatives get the best
    of us; this Christmas we are trying to give the best of ourselves to them.

    9. Last Christmas we thought it was enough to celebrate the holidays; this
    Christmas we know we must also find ways to consecrate them.

    10. Last Christmas we thought a man who could rush down a football field was
    a hero; this Christmas we know a man who rushes into a burning building is
    the real hero.

    11. Last Christmas we were thinking about the madness of the holidays; this
    Christmas we are thinking about the meaning of them.

    12. Last Christmas we were getting on one another's nerves; this Christmas
    we are getting on our knees.

    13. Last Christmas we were giving thanks for gifts from stores; this
    Christmas we are giving thanks for gifts from God.

    14. Last Christmas we were wondering how to give our children all the things
    that money can buy- the hottest toys the latest fashions, the newest gadgets;
    this Christmas we are wondering how to give them all the things it can't-
    like a sense of security, safety, peace.

    15. Last Christmas we were thinking about all the pressure we are under at
    the office; this Christmas we are thinking about the people that no longer
    have an office to go to.

    16. Last Christmas we were singing carols; this Christmas we are singing
    anthems.

    17. Last Christmas we were thinking how good it would feel to be affluent;
    this Christmas we are thinking how good it feels to be alive.

    18. Last Christmas we thought angels were in heaven; this Christmas we know
    some are right here on earth.

    19. Last Christmas we were contemplating all the changes we wanted to make
    in the New Year; this Christmas we are contemplating all the changes we
    will have to make in this new reality.

    20. Last Christmas we believed in the power of the pocketbook; this
    Christmas we believe in the power of prayer.

    21. Last Christmas we were sharing/spreading/listening to gossip; this
    Christmas we are sharing/spreading/listening to the gospel.

    22. Last Christmas we were complaining about how much of our earnings went
    to pay taxes; this Christmas we comprehend that freedom isn't free.

    23. Last Christmas we valued things that were costly; this Christmas we value
    things that are holy.

    24. Last Christmas the people we idolized wore football, basketball, and
    baseball uniforms; this Christmas the people we idolize wear police,
    firefighter, and military uniforms.

    25. Last Christmas "peace on earth" is something we prayed for on Sunday
    mornings; now it is something we pray for every day.

    There is one thing we must always keep in mind, "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE

    Have a blessed Christmas!
