For some time now, family and friends have been praying for a Christmas Miracle. We so want our Dad, Grandpa, Uncles and the other political prisoners to come home for Christmas. Last night before our ten year old daughter went to bed she gave me a letter and asked me to get it mailed as soon as possible. I was thinking it was a letter to her dad or maybe her Grandpa. Below is the letter:
When I read this innocent letter my heart just started to break again into a million pieces. These children of ours all are still holding onto the hope of the Christmas miracle that their daddys will be home for Christmas. I must admit I am also hoping for that miracle. Please continue to pray for the Judge that her heart will be softened and she will be able to help our Christmas wish come true. We only have 12 more days left until Christmas.
With only a little over a week before Christmas I have to admit though that I have not gotten into the Christmas Spirit this year. I just want my husband to be home. Everytime I think of Christmas I just want to bawl. It just doesn't seem right to have Christmas without him. But after I talked with him on the phone tonight he told me that I must try harder to get into the Christmas Spirit. He wants his children to be happy on Christmas Day and be excited about all of the festivities of the holiday season. We do not want them to suffer this Christmas and feel sorrow. These children should not have to suffer and feel sad during this season. They are hurting enough without their daddies. Please continue to pray for our family and all of the other political prisoners families that we will do our best to enjoy this Christmas season. Pray for the men that they may be able to find joy also this Christmas season.
God Bless you all who have helped our families this Christmas season. We appreciate your Christlike love toward our family. We hope someday soon we will be able to pay it forward. You have demonstrated what Christmas is all about, "The spirit of giving without a thought of getting." Our family wants to wish you and all your families a very merry Holiday Season. We must remember that God is a God of miracles and he is ultimately in charge but we must learn to find happiness along the way.
