Having an addictive amount of curiosity.... smile... I HAD to know what my photo would turn out to be...
I found that it was a school photo of me in first grade. I am in the first row second from the right. The year? 1953.
Time passes sooo quickly, doesn't it ? I can't believe how many years, how many memories have crowded into my life since the day that picture was taken.
How little I knew then about what my life would bring... what I would do ... who I would become.
We are once again celebrating the Christmas season..... How many Christmases have come and gone since that night the shepherds gazed upon the new babe born in Bethlehem!
The people alive at that time, lived that 'special' day as ordinarily as they had the day before.. little guessing that the world would never be the same again.
History has recorded the changes.
We all love to look back on the past... we try to preserve our memories , capturing them through the written word or imprisoning them in a photo.
This festive season, even as we enjoy the traditions that have become important to each of us...may we not forget the WHY this time of year is a time of celebrating ... It is a time we look back over the last 2000 years and see that God's love has never ceased. Once more this Christmas season we have an opportunity to remind the world that the God-given invitation to accept the baby boy child we now worship as God - is still open to anyone who prepares room in their heart to receive Him.
May you be blessed this holy-day season ! and may His joy and peace flood your soul as you reflect on the Greatest Gift ever given to mankind !
Now I must tag four - I choose ....
