Message from Sheriff Wayne Ivey
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On behalf of the 1,700 proud men and women of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Susan, Junny and I would like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!
As we awaken to another beautiful Christmas morning here in Brevard County, I am reminded of how special a time of the year Christmas is for the members of our agency.
For our agency members, Christmas is yet another chance for us to once again realize just how truly blessed we are to have the love and support of an incredible community!!
While Christmas is celebrated in many different ways, its true meaning is visible throughout the world. It is a time of faith, joy, reflection and peace with family and friends.
It is a time when we gather together in friendship and love, and a time when we come together to help those that are less fortunate during a time of need. And without question, it is a time when we should put our differences aside to honor the true meaning of Christmas!!
You see while everyone celebrates Christmas in their own special way and through their own family traditions, it is the true meaning of Christmas that makes it so special!! Precious symbols of Christmas such as the crib and tree which hand down in time the true meaning of this incredible day.
The thought to give up one’s very self, to think only of others, and to consider how to bring the greatest happiness to others are all etched within the true meaning of Christmas. In fact, the true meaning of Christmas is about faith, it’s about believing in others, it’s about hope, it’s about giving, and more than anything else it’s about love.
So this morning as you gather around the Christmas tree with your family to open gifts, I ask you to consider that the greatest gift you could ever give them is the one that you can’t buy, order on-line, drive, or even wear.
The greatest gift you could ever give someone is “You!!” Give them your time, give them your attention, give them your friendship, give them your trust, give them your forgiveness, and most of all give them your love!!
So as we prepare to embrace the true meaning of Christmas this morning I ask you to keep in mind that while Christmas only occurs once a year, the Spirit of Christmas should last forever!!
On behalf of a very thankful agency…we wish all of you a very blessed and Merry Christmas!!
– Sheriff Wayne, Susan, and Junny
