Graciousness,trust,kindness,love,and forgiveness are intangible things.They can’t be given as a gift .They can’t be purchased at any store , through the internet or TV shopping channels .The world with it’s advanced technology can’t produce trust, pull kindness or love from a computer program.As humans ,we are with limited ability ,we can’t perceive God’s infinite wisdom ,we can’t see his love and compassion for us.Haven can’t be bought by anyone and then handed over to another as a gift.Can we see our souls or our conscience?Yet they are ours.I hope every person will search within himself and renew his promises to himself to be the best version of himself. Have happy and prosperous new 2014 and may every hope come true.((Jalal Michael Sabbagh.))

Every person in the world is “I” equal in every sense of the word.Despite race,color,believe,stature,looks and gender we have one essential thing in common “this world” Its up to us to make it hell or heaven.Through out history the ruthless rulers and totalitarian governments dispute each other and humanity in general suffers.Happy Healthy and Hopeful new year so peace and love may govern the earth.Jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://email@example.com
One of the greatest movies of the 1970’s was “Love Story”It was a huge hit and massive box office success.It won three Golden Globes Prizes and the Academy Award.Watching the movie gives the viewer an immense sense of romance.But there was one flaw in the story. It was the most famous line in the script which proclaims .”Love means never having to say sorry.” Any relation between friends ,lovers ,wife and husband and between family members without having to apologize to each other when its very crucial its not a fruitful relationship.Because love demands sacrifices.((Jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://firstname.lastname@example.org))
Drink with me with your eyes.
Get drunk with me in you mind.
Let me be inflamed by your fire,
By your charm,your fascinating desire.
Promise me what does the moon aspire.
Swear by your fairness if you don’t drink,
To leave me a kiss on your glass brim ,
Before the lovely night expire.
l vow l will never drink again ,
unless you leave me alone and retire.
Drinking is senseless without you being here.
For a bird with broken wing can’t fly any higher .
Believe me my princess l will always ,
Adore your modesty and your glamor.
And for being so secretive l do fondly admire.

” Humanity is immensely enriched by Christ’s birth , love ,and sacrifice.”Its undeniable that there is a vicious war on Christmas in particular and on Christianity in general by the skeptics who are brutally tortured by their own deception,depressed conscience ,their insignificance ,their feelings of loss,guilt and by their sinfulness.They are hiding behind their dark distrust ideology.These agnostics are envious of the beauty and the real meaning of Christmas.Christmas is the H o p e of redemption .Christmas is the gift of new everlasting p e a c e of reconciliation between God and humans.The faith of those who affirm their trust in Christmas is shinning like a million S u n through out the centuries and through out the season of joy.(1) Christmas is the ones we love and cherish.(2) Christmas is the miracles in our children and grandchildren.(3) Christmas is the smiles on little faces.(4) Christmas is to love the poor,the needy and the helpless.(5)Christmas is to forgive the enemy.(6) Christmas is to appreciate our families,our country,our parents and our freedom.(7) Christmas is when people achieve their dreams and their missions.(8) Christmas is when the mourners are consoled , when the cold hearts are warmed ,when the doubtful believes.(9)Christmas is when L o v e dwells in every home. (10) Christmas is when we accept the others like ourselves.(( Wishing you a joyous Christmas season and happy , prosperous new 2014.)) jalal Michael Sabbagh.http://firstname.lastname@example.org
