A Dad suggested to his family that they could give him a gift that the whole family could enjoy. So they did. They bought Dad a new wallet.
It was the day after Christmas and a Pastor noticed that Baby Jesus was missing from the outdoor Nativity Scene. As he walked around the parking lot, he saw a 5 year-old boy pulling a red wagon with the missing Baby Jesus as a passenger. The Pastor walked over to the little boy and asked where did he find his passenger? The little boy replied, “I took him from the Church.” The Pastor asked the little boy why he took the Baby Jesus from the Church. The Little Boy said, “ Well, about a week before Christmas I prayed to the little Lord Jesus and told him if He would bring me a red wagon for Christmas then I would give him a ride around the parking lot of the church.“ Christmas should be filled with Expectations & Gratitude. Speaking of Gratitude. Thanks for all who helped in my absence this past Sunday. Thanks for your prayers and concern for Nancy and me. Thanks to Terry Williams for preaching. Thanks to Deborah, Donna, Fran and the Carter Creek Pickers and others who helped in making the Christmas Fellowship a Success .
