Posted on 12/24/2002 4:07:11 PM PST by rintense

President Bush and First Lady Laura are with their children and relatives at Camp David to celebrate Christmas. Today, Bush called nine American service men and women to thank them for their service to our country.

In the spirit of Christmas, this thread is devoted to Christmas wishes for the President and each other, as we celebrate the birthday of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: I send greetings to those celebrating Christmas.

During Christmas, we gather with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. As God's only Son, Jesus came to Earth and gave His life so that we may live. His actions and His words remind us that service to others is central to our lives and that sacrifice and unconditional love must guide us and inspire us to lead lives of compassion, mercy, and justice.

The true spirit of Christmas reflects a dedication to helping those in need, to giving hope to those in despair, and to spreading peace and understanding throughout the Earth. As we share love and enjoy the traditions of this holiday, we are also grateful for the men and women of our Armed Forces who are working to defend freedom, secure our homeland, and advance peace and safety around the world.

This Christmas, may we give thanks for the blessings God has granted to our Nation and in each of our lives. May the joy of the holidays renew our commitment to working together for a future of peace, opportunity, and hope.

Laura joins me in wishing you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

GEORGE W. BUSH

So Fight the Fight Fer Liberty...
And know You're Not Alone!!"

(MUD workin' the harmonica hard...)

I dreamed I FReeped with Rush Limbaugh,

Merry Christmas to you and to our awesome President! What a beautiful Christmas message this year. I am so proud to see him acknowledge our Savior Jesus Christ as the true meaning of Christmas. May our Lord bless President Bush by continuing to encourage and strengthen him, and giving him suoernatural protection against his enemies and the enemies of our country. May we all have a blessed new year!

The Merriest Christmas ever to you all ...

In a few days I will be spending the last few days with my nephew before he ships out for Qutar. Waiting at home will be a wife and 2 little girls. We will continue to surround him with our prayers for his safety.

You'll like this story.

My best friend and her family headed to Indiana for Christmas today, but before she left, she was fretting that she wasn't sure how to make it seem Santa visited while they were gone. Her little girl is 4 and was very worried that Santa wouldn't visit if they weren't in the house. So, since I am checking in on their pets, I decided to put all the gifts under the tree this evening so that when they get home tomorrow, the little girl will know Santa was there.

She even asked me to put out cookies for Santa since she forgot. Of course, I will be sure to take a bite out of a few and leave a thank you note from the jolly St. Nick himself.

Merry Christmas to you, too, rin - and to all of the Bush supporters here who are celebrating tonight and tomorrow. We have been given a man of integrity in the Oval Office, and I am so thankful for that this Christmas. God bless you all!

Please keep all of us updated, with a gentle (or not so gentle) reminder that he's gone, OK? I'll definitely pray for the whole family.
