Amen! May Christmas be forever and always in our hearts. Well done.
This is lovely! Indeed, every day IS Christmas for those who "know" Him!

This reads like a charming folk tale. I was completely drawn in, and just loved it! Great writing!

I loved the lesson here, even though we know it, we don't really live it to the fullest.. the realization that He lives within us... really a good tale with a happy takeaway.

This is the first time I've seen that song, it really fits with the story.

I love your story. In August, my 84 year-old mother, who is in very bad health, asked me if I'd thought about how I was going to decorate. I said, "decorate what?" She said, "for Christmas." I said, "mom, Christmas isn't for four months." She said, "Well, I just wondered if you'd thought about how you're going to decorate." I said, "Well, I thought I might put up the big tree." She said, "That's what I had in mind." I didn't decorate for Christmas in August, but on October 8th I did. Thankfully, mom is still with me.
I love the story, and I looked up the music for the song and love that, too. That would make a great children's play for church along with the children singing the song. :)
