This saga of mine started August 4th, 1949. There have been
almost 70 such Christmas mornings! Each year has had its share of joys and tears, ups and downs, mountain tops and deep dark valleys.

I chanced to be out in the predawn hours on this celebrated morning. It was icy for this part of the country. The quiet was arresting, causing one to stop and look up — my steps slowing making an arch between my destination and my haven. Turning, the ink black sky canvas was lightly peppered with the pinprick sparkling stars. There was one, so pronounced it assured you it was “THE ONE.”

The moon’s translucent radiance rendered me in such wonder I paused in spite of the chill to ponder all that is going on right now. Looking at life widowed, parents gone, children away, sickness, finances bottoming out, crime, hate, wars, and disasters even on this “O Holy Night.”

However, there it was, the moon so very beautiful. Who could bring such beauty and why? GOD, only GOD!

He made heaven and earth. The earth was without form and void. Darkness was upon the face of the deep,
and God said, “Let there be Light.” From there He said and formed until everything that is was created. He put man in a perfect place. Man chose to disobey thus, plunging the whole world in sin.

This turmoil caused by sin rocked on, but the Love that made the world loved so much, another chance was extended to all who would look and live. When the​ “can’t help it’s​” engulfs our lives, unwise choices, heartaches, difficulties and gravely wounded, His love shines through. His Son was sent just for you wherever you are right now.

Out of the millions and millions, I am essential; You are essential and LOVED. The virgin, the manger, the Garden, the Cross all for you, all for me. Christmas is the expression of Love from The Almighty God, Wonderful, Counsellor, The Prince Of Peace, The EVERLASTING FATHER to you and me.
LOVE and Joy to the world!
(Genesis 1-4, Isaiah 9:6)
