Merry Christmas: Jeff and Kath

Croston, Lancashire

In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.

Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak mid-winter long ago.
What can I give Him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; Yet what can I give Him: give my heart.

Oscar, our thoughts are with you this Christmas.
So many people care about you.

Jeff and Kath,
Lancashire, England

Merry Christmas: A.M.P.


The symbols of Christmas

How often have we seen them, how often drawn them when we were children?

The star ~ symbolising the light that penetrates the densest darkness, the guiding star in our life

The angel ~ symbolising hope and peace

The Christmas tree ~ evergreen, symbolising eternal life

The Christmas gift ~ symbolising love and care for one another

The New-born Child who brings all that to all mankind, to every man, woman and child, to you and me


Dear Oscar,

I wish you a blessed Christmas, a day of peace and true Christmas joy.

A Christmas blessing from afar to you.

Merry Christmas: Sally

Dear Oscar

It’s a particularly hard time for people in prison around the Christmas season. You must feel forgotten sometimes, but you are not.  I hope you are allowed to celebrate as a Christian and also that you are allowed to receive cards and gifts.  I lit a candle for you at a Carol Service earlier this month – your candle twinkled in front of the altar and it made me happy to remember you.

Oscar, I will continue to remember you and your family and loved ones in my prayers all across the Christmas period.  I wish you as happy and peaceful a Christmas as is possible.

Much love to you.
Sally (UK)
