Christmas Eve – 2013

Christmas Eve is so special to me. Growing up in a Polish family, Christmas Eve IS Christmas! So I had a hard time deciding what I should post that would be special for Christmas Eve 2013 – childhood memories of Christmas Eves past?  Then, thanks to Steve WX2S, who jarred a very, very special Christmas Eve memory from 45 years ago, I decided to post this.  It is so appropriate!

A VERY Merry and Blessed Christmas to you all, all of you on the good, good Earth!

    Thank you Larry for the reminder from the past. I was so fortunate to see that on television. I was living in Lansing, MI then and my wife and I were raising our four children together. I recently saw a license plate on a vehicle that said “God Won”. Yes, God has won the victory for all through His Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Oh, how God longs to bring His people together and join Him in His Story. “And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:9-11)

    Merry Christmas and God Bless.
