  • While many are mentioned in the scriptures as it relates to the story of the first Christmas, many were unaware of the impact of this event.

    The first of those who missed Christmas was quite obviously the innkeeper, although his name is not actually mentioned. In the hustle and bustle of his life, he missed it, although one would think that, of all those mentioned, he should not have missed it.

    Mary and Joseph must have come to the desk of the innkeeper, and the child was born in a stable because “there was no room for them in the inn.”

  • I love Christmas. With decorations and music and all the things to remind us whose birthday is being celebrated. It’s that time of year when we kick back in our recliners and flip on the game as the aroma of a freshly cut tree fills the house.

  • I like the winter landscape because I can see past the green canvas of summer into neighboring fields where horses graze and a pet cow that is almost as old as me slumbers. I can see mistletoe everywhere, too, driving down the interstate, walking in the park, sitting at a traffic light. It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness. We are obviously not the first to notice round globs of greenery nestled in tree tops.

  • You may be delighted to put gardening behind you for the season, but fall is the time to manage and prevent disease in next year’s garden. Summer crops may still be standing, even after being killed by heavy frosts and cold temperatures. At this time, you can take preemptive measures to help ensure a successful and bountiful garden next season.
