linusYou’ve probably gotten a few dozen Christmas cards by now.

And perhaps just as many emails from campaigns, candidates, organizations and businesses.You’re undoubtedly busy and the next few days will be hectic.

As my family prepares for the Holidays, perhaps my greatest gift to you is to share one simple sentiment that has always rejuvenated me during this season.

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them,

Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

– The Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2, Verses 8-14

And that’s what Christmas is all about, Iowa…

On behalf of the Republican Party of Iowa, Merry Christmas to you.
