       Celebrations around the world! Happy holidays! Festivities! It is a time for giving, a time for gifts! And yet, what is this I see? I see people searching for love. I see people without any true Christmas gifts. I see people everywhere, running here and running there, desperately looking for some little ray of hope, a little love, a little mercy, a little relief, some kind of salvation. And amidst all this, I couldn't help but notice you sitting there, wondering, "Does anybody really care?" Well, yes! I care! And I love you!
       I've had My eye on you for a long time now. I've always loved you, and I always will. In fact, I care for you so dearly that I come with special gifts straight from My heart to yours. You won't find these gifts in any shop or mall. They cannot be sold or bought for a price, and yet they are priceless and rare. Those who possess them are most richly blessed.
       Love, joy, peace -- these are My special gifts for you! Love that knows no boundaries. Love that does not judge you by the color of your skin, the way you look, or how you speak. Love that gives. Love that shares. Love that cares. Love that is alive, vibrant, warm and kind. Love that is unconditional and forever.
       Love that is patient in a world of intolerance. Love that is understanding when others fail to see into your heart. Love that is kind and tender, when all else around you seems cold and hard. Love that comforts you in your sorrow, that consoles you when you're lonely, that gives you a helping hand when you're down. Love that is full of happiness and laughter. Love that brings peace in the midst of stormy weather. Love that always finds a way.
       My love is always there for you -- any place, any time, day or night. My love will descend to any depth to save, go any length to rescue. It knows no stopping place, it knows no limit in giving. I give you My love, infinite and true.
       My love brings peace of mind when you are confused, rest when you are weary, and strength when you feel you cannot go on. My love will calm your fears and give you courage in the face of despair. My love can heal when your body is broken; it can soothe your heartaches and pain. My love will ease your mind when it is troubled and weary; it will melt away tension, worry and strain.
       My love is My Christmas gift for you. It's always been there for you. Will you take it now?
       I can't promise you will never have heartaches, disappointments or worries as you walk down the road of life. But I can promise that I'll give you encouragement, instruction, guidance, wisdom, and the strength you need to come through. I promise to never leave your side. Together we'll survive any difficulty, overcome any weakness, hurdle any obstacle. My love is power -- power to do and power to be.
       I know, I love, and I care for you, as if you were the only one in the world. That's the reason I came to earth on Christmas day -- to give My great love to you. I want you to have abundant love in your life. I want you to be free from sorrow.
       You may ask, "In these modern times so grim and bleak, who could possibly care so much for me? In these days when so many people's love has grown cold, who can I really trust? Where do I look? Who do I believe? This sounds so good, but is it a sham? How could anyone have so great a love, and gifts, no less, and all for free?"
       Well, all I ask is that you give Me a chance. Try Me and see. Just hold out your hand, and let Me place My gifts of love there. Don't worry, simply receive, and in the end, you will see just how happy you'll be.
       Come talk to Me, anywhere, anytime, anyplace, any way you prefer. Talk to Me out loud, or whisper softly if you like. Speak to Me in words, or just send Me your thoughts, signaling Me from your heart in the rush of the day or the stillness of the night. Any way you feel comfortable is fine with Me. You can tell Me anything you want, and I will understand. I'm here for you, with a listening ear, sympathy and understanding.
       All you have to do is say yes. Just open your heart, reach out and receive. Call on Me and I'll come to your aid with My free gifts, My Christmas gifts for you. Just say, "I take You, Jesus. I want all Your gifts, and a life that is full and free. Give me Your gifts of love, joy and peace. Show me the way. Show me how to live, and how to act along my way." It's just that simple. I'll do the rest.
       Please don't forget. Don't wait too long. I have wonderful things in store for you, if you'll give Me a chance.
       And when your life on earth is done, I'll bring you home with Me -- home to My country, Heaven, where there is no pain, no sorrow, confusion or war. Here there is no fear, no hatred, no greed or strife, only My free, abundant gifts of love, and much, much more. All you have to do is say yes and accept them. I'll be waiting.

I love you,
