It’s Christmas Day.
You may believe in God and that he entered this world at Bethlehem to experience humanity and redeem it.
Even those who don’t can usually embrace the messages of peace and hope that surround this season.
Those addicted to alcohol or drugs or anything else long for peace in their lives. And it is possible to find it through making a new start on the path to recovery.
Those on that road already can affirm that there is hope. It may be fragile at times, it can sometimes become hidden, but we soon realise it is never lost and things can be good again.
Christmas is the “Season of Goodwill”. Through hope and your efforts, good will come to you.
For you and your family and friends may this be a Happy Christmas.
