    Si, y Feliz Navidad tambien (if i remember my high school Spanish)

    Eleven aunts and uncles, all the grandchildren and a few strays, sit down dinner requiring a few card tables, big tree, fire in the inglenook, all the presents opened, the lights turned off and grandpa reading the Christmas story from the book of Luke – every year of my childhood… until the year grandpa had his first stroke. He said he couldn’t speak clear enough to be understood and someone else should read. His youngest son, the wild child, said, “Pop, it won’t be Christmas if we don’t hear you read the scripture to end the evening!”
    Grandpa read, we listened. We knew the story. . It was grandpa’s affirmation we wanted to hear and all the grandchildren went home aware of how important and what was being celebrated… A 2,000 year old holy night…
    Not church? Not sure…. Most all of those gathered there were or are confessing Christians … So many now in the Lord’s presence…

    Good memories and “blessed assurance..”
