    Hi guys,

    My co-worker gave me the most heartfelt x-mas card ever. She said I know you don't celebrate, but please accept this. I was reluctant, but I thought to myself well her intentions were good, why not. I read it and it made me ball up, she said " You are an model employee that the rest of us look up to, you stand firm regarding your beliefs yet don't pressure us to believe the same or condem us for our actions, you are an honest hard-workrking person who is a pleasure to be around. You are religious but have a balanced point of view of others. Thanks for being you.

    On one hand I feel proud that I glorify Jah's name at work

    but on the other, I feel crappy about accepting an x-mas card.

    What do you guys think?

    When someone gives you a compliment take it in the spirit it was given and just say thank you.

    El_Guapo.......I was an elder when I was raising my kids in this cult. Now I look at the Christmas tree with picture decorations of my grandkids and just think of the wasted time I spend in the JW's. Stay a JW if you must, but there is nothing wrong with celebrating Christmas.
