MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL FROM SCARED MONKEYS
We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Especially those that cannot be with their families during this special day. A special Merry Christmas goes to the brave men and women in our military who spend this day away from their families so that we may have Peace. God Bless you, everyone.
Scared Monkeys has dealt with so many families that have gone through difficult times during this past year. We wish them the peace of the Lord on this Christmas day that they might find comfort from any pain.
We also wish a special Christmas Greetings to all who have sacrificed for others. There is nothing more special that giving to others and the giving of yourself to others. Especially, giving to people that you have never met. The ultimate gift is one where no thanks is every expected.
THE REASON FOR THE SEASON
” Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth even for ever.”
And the angel said to them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord This will be a sign to you: You wilt find a baby wrapped in strips of cloths and lying in a manger

About 82% of Americans in 2007 told Gallup interviewers that they identified with a Christian religion. That includes 51% who said they were Protestant, 5% who were “other Christian,” 23% Roman Catholic, and 3% who named another Christian faith, including 2% Mormon.
Because 11% said they had no religious identity at all, and another 2% didn’t answer, these results suggest that well more than 9 out of 10 Americans who identify with a religion are Christian in one way or the other.
