I’m preempting the usual Tuesday Teaching Tip today, of course.
Merry Christmas! The two words I keep in my heart all year.
May this day hold glad greetings, moments for memories, and just generally a feeling of joy. Pure joy like the little girl who came skipping down the aisle at the children’s mass last night at my church.
She was in a procession of children who were bringing lit candles to place at the altar in honor of Jesus’s coming.
Once she placed her candle, she turned and skipped joyfully back to her place.
The congregation broke out in laughter and applause.
Oh, to have that much joy all of our lives.
Do we dare?
Maybe this is a teaching tip after all…this time the child leads the way.
Once more, Merry Christmas!!
