Merry Christmas to my precious children, Albert and Alfred.

Dearest God,
We love you. We worship you. We honor you. We praise you. We adore you.
We thank you for being our loving God.

Dearest Albert and Alfred,

May God bless you.
God and your mommy loves you very very much.

Wishing my precious children a Merry Christmas.
Hope you both are doing fine.

Hope you both read the story of the birth of Jesus from the Holy Bible. I used to read it to you every Christmas prior to our deceptive separation. I miss reading books with you and to you.

Do you remember you used to act in Christmas plays at church and sing Christmas carols. You both looked absolutely adorable. I used to video record you both. However, I do not have the video recordings, as our home sweet home was empty when I returned, everything shipped to India, without our knowledge.

Your loving mommy to had taken part in Christmas plays and carol singing when she was in school.

The loving bond between Jesus, our Lord, and his mother, Mary.
Mary was given such a blessed, beautiful, elegant, graceful and powerful title "Hail Mary, Full of Grace. The Lord is with you" by God's messenger, Angel Gabriel at annunciation.
Luke 1:28
And he came to her and said, “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!”

Mary was pure and had found favor from God to be the mother of His son, Jesus. Mary obeyed God's will.
Luke 1:38
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”

Jesus Christ is the son of God.
Jesus and his mother, Mary, had a pure, true and loving bond between them. Jesus had filial piety to his parents. Filial piety is the ways of respect, deference and loyalty to one's parents.

Jesus Christ performed his very first miracle for His mother, Mary, at the wedding at Cana.

In the Lord's prayer, Jesus Christ teaches all of us to pray to let God's will be done.
Mathew 6:8-13
 Pray then like this:
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors;

And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Jesus himself wanted God's will be accomplished when he prayed at Gethsemane. Jesus did not choose the easy way out, but honored the will of God.
Mathew 26:39
He went a little farther on, threw himself face downward on the ground, and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, take this cup of suffering from me! Yet not what I want, but what you want.”

Mathew 26:42
Once more Jesus went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cup of suffering cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.”
Mathew 26:44

Again Jesus left them, went away, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

Jesus and Mary obeyed God's will all the time.

Jesus suffered obeying the will of God. Mary, his mother, suffered watching her precious son suffer. I, as a mother, can feel the pain only to a small extent, that Mother Mary felt watching all that Jesus suffered. A sword did pass through Mary's soul too, as Simeon had predicted when baby Jesus was presented at the temple in Jerusalem. How painful it might have been for Mary to watch her baby boy suffer so much. How painful it would have been for Jesus to be beaten and his body scarred so badly and a crown of thorns placed on his head. He had to carry the heavy cross all the way up the hill in Calvary on that bleeding scared body. He was nailed to the cross. Just imagine and try to feel the pain of Jesus. While he was on the cross, in this painful situation, he thought of his mother, Mary. He was concerned about who will look after her after he leaves and handed his mother in the care of his beloved disciple, John. Jesus displays his filial piety for his mother, his true and pure love for his mother, even in his most painful situation. He lastly commends his spirit to go to God.

I admire Jesus true and pure love for his mother, Mary.

After Jesus rose, he meets his mother and his disciples again bringing back true joy and peace to his mother and disciples. I love you, Jesus.

Jesus and his mother, Mary, shared a true and pure loving bond with each other, both in their good times and times of great pain. I share a true and pure loving bond with my precious children, Albert and Alfred and my precious children share a true and loving bond with their own loving mother, a bond created by God, our heavenly Father, whose cords can never be broken by anyone.

True joy and peace is bestowed on us, when we honor, respect and obey God, our dearest heavenly Father, not only in our good and happy times, but also in our painful times. Just knowing that God is guiding us all the time and He is carrying us in our painful times and having true faith that He will bestow justice, brings us all the joy and peace in this world.

God loves us too much and we will celebrate merry, joyful and peaceful Christmas together in future.

Isaiah 9:6
A child is born to us! A son is given to us! And he will be our ruler. He will be called, “Wonderful Counselor,” “Mighty God,” “Eternal Father,” “Prince of Peace.”

Mathew 2:1-12
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.” When King Herod heard this, he was greatly troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. Assembling all the chief priests and the scribes of the people, He inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it has been written through the prophet: And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; since from you shall come a ruler, who is to shepherd my people Israel.” Then Herod called the magi secretly and ascertained from them the time of the star’s appearance. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search diligently for the child. When you have found him, bring me word, that I too may go and do him homage.” After their audience with the king they set out. And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed for their country by another way.

Luke 2:8-11
There were some shepherds in that part of the country who were spending the night in the fields, taking care of their flocks. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid, but the angel said to them, “Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David's town your Savior was born—Christ the Lord!
