At our home, there was a wall in the garage marked with smudged pencil lines, each one carefully dated. There, our children were measured on their birthdays to see how much they’ve grown during the year. Quite often I use to look at those lines and was reminded of days past and the truth that time does not stand still.
Suppose we stand at an imaginary wall and measure our own...
Miraculous was the birth of Jesus. Trying to understand it with human perspective is impossible. However, the Virgin birth is like the resurrection. It is a miracle, and miracles cannot be proven. They simply exist. The star that guided the Wise Men also was a miracle. No other star has done or ever will do what that star did that night.
Believe it or not, the best-selling song of all time is Bing Crosby’s, “White Christmas”. Over 100 million copies sold worldwide.
While we’re still not sure if we will have snow for Christmas, I do have to admit it would be nice. But more important than having a white Christmas, there should be a desire in our hearts to have a “right” Christmas.
