Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. On this beautiful Christmas day, as we celebrate the birth of the Mighty King, I am reminded that not every heart is experiencing a “merry” Christmas. This season heightens so many emotions… joy is amplified, but feelings of pain, anxiety and loss are also felt more deeply. I am thankful that our Savior is truly a wonderful counselor and the reigning prince of peace. Whether your Christmas is carefree and bright or subdued and tumultuous this year, our team is praying for you, and the Spirit of Christ is yours to behold. Thank you for being a part of our Anne Neilson family. We are excited to grow in 2016 and share the new season with you. May His holy angels surround you always (Psalm 91).
