The Gold Wrapping Paper








Let us during these short days of celebration, remember the season is not about expensive gifts nor the wrapping paper they come in but the love, memories, and happiness found in the comforting warmth of family, friends, and even strangers in passing.



Let us also remember to send up a prayer this year of gratitude for divine intervention during this presidential election and pray that 2017 brings the brighter light of hope and return of our most cherished values of freedom, security, and a better quality of life for all.


Let the bell of freedom ring; the light of liberty shine; and our flag ever fly above our republic.

May God grant each of us a foundation of rock to build upon, courage, steadfastness, and strength to meet every challenge with His guidance to preserve this country for many generations to come.

  1. You won’t believe this but, upon watching this video, a terrible dust storm blew through, in front of my eyes, and now I can barely see.

    Thanks for posting this, Uriel. And let me take this fine, solemn opportunity to wish You and ALL of HN&F a Wonderful Christmas.

    We’ve waited, prepared for and prayed, for nearly a decade, for the evil madness of DC to be rent asunder and we’re watching it happen, now.

    With G-d’s continued help, we’ll see it replaced by what this nation was originally built upon – His Divine Ordinances.

    Mankind has a short memory so let’s NOT forget how we got here and WHO rescued us lest we fall, once again, into the muck and mire of we have so vehemently loathed.

      I agree Hadenough we can NOt let this lesson be forgotten. Dust storms here too when I first watched it.

      • Dust storms in winter – kinda weird, huh?

        No, we can’t allow it to be forgotten. We need to keep reminding one another of it every day and at every opportunity. Ad nauseum, if necessary…

    Believe it or not there was another reason I added this particular video (beyond reminding us of the real purpose of Christmas). Change the little girl to be our founding fathers and the story takes on a whole new meaning.

    Great story and message. Thanks for posting.

    • Uriel says:

      You are welcome Hardnox. This coming year we need to all stay frosty. Our family’s lives and our country’s future depends upon it.

    That was a beautiful and very sobering message, Uriel. Thank You for the reminder of what Christmas is about.
    A Very Merry Christmas to you and your family !
