Christmas Day, 2014
As I woke up late this morning to the beautiful day the Lord gave us, I was reminded of how blessed we are. I know many people fantasize about having a White Christmas but as far as some of us are concerned, we'll take a bright sunny Christmas morning like this anytime. I also was reminded of a certain harmonica-playing dear member of our church, who is rejoicing in Heaven along with his wife right now, who would make it a point to call me personally every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's day just to wish me a good one. Perhaps I'm just a corny, sentimental old guy but it always meant a lot to me. Perhaps, I'm misapplying it a bit but I thought of these words Jesus shared with His Disciples in John 14:12: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do ; because I go unto my Father."
I took it as a reminder that, because of today's electronic advancements, I can personally wish all of you together a heartfelt blessed Christmas day just by use of my pc. And that's exactly what I just did. Have a blessed day!
P.S. I forgot to add that I appreciate getting Christmas greetings by way of email just as I would a phone call. In fact, if those who did it in thepast would have had computers back then, they would have resorted to that instead of their home telephone. Those who have sent greeting, thank you very much for thinking of me.
