This Present Christmas

   Sometimes we have to close our eyes so we can see.  We have to leave behind the ordinary and look deep into the heart of the One Who was born at Christmas.  Then we can witness the marvelous miracle that began with the life of a tiny Baby, the Son of God.
   There was never a night like it before or since.  In our hearts we can relive the events of that night when Heaven touched earth.  We can walk to the stable, hear the angels' message, reach for the star, and find Jesus as alive today as He has always been.
    So, close your eyes and look beyond the here and now and straight into the realm of eternity.  Christ is still being born in the hearts of men today, and those hearts resound with the angels, "peace on earth, good will to men!"
