Roesch Family Christmas 2017 – Ogden, UT – Fujifilm X100F

Merry Christmas from Fuji X Weekly and the Roesch family! I hope this holiday finds you doing well and that all your wishes and dreams are realized. May your tree stay green and fresh until the new year dawns.

My gift to you is a prayer that you will be surrounded by love and peace this Christmas. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, but when things aren’t going well it can seem especially bleak. The colorful lights, the carefully wrapped gifts under the tree, the classic carols on the radio, these things and more all point to a hope that exists. There is hope. There is always hope, and we must hold onto it tightly and never let go.

Hope brings joy, and joy comes in the morning. Each day begins anew, a clean slate, a fresh start. Make that phone call. Connect with friends and family. Don’t let this time slip away. There is indeed magic in the air. Offer your heart as a gift. Give your time. Give forgiveness. Be the blessing. Be the change. Be the joy.

Christmas is not about the gifts under the tree. It’s not about the stores filled with toys and the half-price sales. It’s never about getting things. Charlie Brown knew this, but it took Linus to explain what this season is about. An undeserved gift given in a humble fashion is what we celebrate. The message is simple: love is the greatest.
