‘Twas the Night Before…’

Everything changed…forever.

Imagine a world without Christmas…a world without Christ. Imagine a world without the Golden Rule. Imagine a world where no one ever turned the other cheek. Imagine a world where the last could never be first and the least could never be most. Imagine a world ruled by the tenets of Christless religion, with its vengeful gods and their impossible demands.

Or, imagine a world where Darwin was right and only the fittest survive, where the weak and sickly are inevitably trampled and eliminated. Talk about a dog-eat-dog world!

Imagine all the people…living their lives without even the remotest influence of Christ and His teachings on their thinking and behavior. Everything is dark because the light of the world never shined.

Remember this:

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” ~James 1:17

EVERY good gift…and it starts with the greatest gift of them all.

When you wake tomorrow morning, remember that first Christmas morning. Remember the birth announcement that changed the world, that brought hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless, and life to the lifeless.

“…For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord…” ~Luke 2:11

I am a lover, a fighter, and a midnight writer. I love football, hamburgers, and philosophical inquiries. I love Jesus more than any of that. I love my wife, my daughters, my grandson, and my English Setters, Huck and Finn. I also love Huck Finn...and other seminal characters in American literature. Like Gus McCrae. I love the English language. I love to dive into the wonders of its depth and splash around in the shallow end where colloquialisms and slang rule and reign.
