A grandson stayed with my wife and me overnight last week. He made history in our house. He was the first, solo grandchild to over-night with us – ever. It was nice to have you come Drew, nice to have your help on Saturday, and nice we could visit the local cattle auction that PM. (“Cattle” is a broad term as we saw a horse or two, goats, and pigs before the cattle came in the ring.) Due to our children’s scattered homes, kids ages/personalities, and/or other situations we’ve not enjoyed until now what many of you have. Not complaining but now grateful for this visit. Thanks also for making the delivery to Cincy.

If you think you have answers sublime,

Tell me, What is this thing called time?

The coming expected “big deal”

Seemed, before, a “century away”

Is now past, its distance surreally unreal

What happened to that day?

Over two decades ago I noticed “christmas”

had a hold on an adult. Now its tentacles clutch more adults. If (that’s a huge IF) Christ was born in December, His birth was a MIRACLE. The devil’s played up a winter holiday, associating it with Magic (his fake switch for Miracle). Thinking-Christian do NOT push santa on their child; even without this substitute for Jesus (“he knows if you’ve good or bad”) we must guard against the Day, Decorations, Duplicity being more about us/our house/our church than about The Savior of the World. Christ came; Christ arose from the dead, but satan tries to hide both world-changing events. Harken.
