Christmas a Time to Reflect, Rejoice

Christmas a Time to Reflect, Rejoice


By state Rep. Mike Sanders



The Christmas season is upon us, providing the chance to reflect on the blessings in our lives and thank God for the gifts He gives us.

For me personally, this is a time to be extra thankful for my family, especially my son, Davis, who arrived last February.

I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, Nellie, who has made me a better man.

I have been blessed to live in rural Oklahoma and enjoy all the benefits of living in a small community. Even in a tough economy, our state remains a land of opportunity.

I have been blessed with good neighbors and friends, and I have the chance to represent their views at the Capitol working a job I enjoy.

It’s December, a time of pageants at school and church, a time to enjoy friends and family. It’s a time to be thankful for the men and women serving in our military today, many of them in places far from home – we’re blessed by their service, so please keep them in your prayers.

Most of all, this is a time to reflect on the birth of our savior.

So I won’t talk about politics this week, but will simply end this column with one simple wish: I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas.

And as always, I would love to hear from you. I can be reached at the Capitol at (405) 557-7407.
