It really is the most beautiful time of the year! We’ve already experienced our first snowfall of the season, setting the stage for a beautiful Christmas and New Year’s!
We at Lancaster County Woman newspaper are truly blessed and want others to experience these blessings as well. For the past 20 years we’ve shined the spotlight on numerous community organizations by publishing a list of items they need to continue providing essential services to our community. This year is no exception. Check out these wonderful organizations (starting on page 25) and give generously by volunteering your time, donating supplies, or making a monetary contribution.
These organizations are the backbone of our community, and your donations ensure their continued operation, especially during the holiday season, when resources are limited and demand is high.
The Bible says, “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” (Proverbs 22:9). So give generously with gratitude for what you have been given. You will be a blessing to others, and in turn you’ll be blessed, too!
This holiday edition is full of special events, services, and products, all designed to enhance your enjoyment of the season. From beautiful holiday dresses and gowns at Bella Rose Bridal Boutique (located in the new Shoppes at Belmont), to a free Advent concert at the Jesuit Center in Wernersville, there are special products and events for you and your family to enjoy everywhere in the county.
Among the unique holiday offerings are Lancaster School of Cosmetology’s very affordable spa gift packages and Spa la Vie’s holiday stress-relieving massages and specialty skin-care treatments. Dr. Wendell Funk’s Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center can help you become a new you in 2019…and at the same time, get a jump on summer beach weather. Dr. William Carter’s Medical Cosmetics will help you rejuvenate sun-damaged skin and have you looking great for the holidays.
With all the excitement of the holidays, it’s easy to forget the reason for the season: the birth of Jesus Christ. We are thankful for His birth and His sacrifice to ensure everlasting life.
Please remember to pray for our soldiers and their families everywhere in the world, especially during the holidays. Many families will not be together, and our prayers and gratitude go out to all of them.
With Warm Blessings
to You and Your Family
for a very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year!
