What gift will you offer this Christmas?

I would like to thank all of those who have been praying for me after hypothermia sent me to Englehart Hospital. I am feeling some improvement this morning thanks to the many prayers being lifted up to the Father. I believe this improvement is for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, the Lord has given me Kingdom energy to share the enduring message that loving others, accepting even the people whom many in society deem unlovable is the gift He wants you all to give. It requires no wrapping paper. The gift of loving hearts is there in all of us. We just need to reach within ourselves to give it.

The second reason I believe there has been this improvement is because my Lord has heard the prayers and tears of my wife, Karen, and all of your collective prayers. I thank God for each and every one of you.  We rest ourselves in the arms of the Great Physician, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Through your comments I have been given my Christmas present of having you share your life with me, your challenges and your joys. Thank you for trusting me as you have opened up part of yourselves to me. I am deeply and profoundly moved by so many outstretched hands of love and prayerful support.

The message of the empty stocking is for all of us. Let us each one extend the outstretched arms of our love first to God and then to one another. It is in doing this that we fill the empty stocking with God’s love for all.



About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
