For 2017

Christmas Eve 2006

I have some very dear Jewish friends. In fact we celebrated with them last night - we combined celebrations. I just wonder what it would be like not to believe in Jesus. To not celebrate Christmas. In the wonderful USA there is Christmas everywhere. I think my neighborhood was more lit up this year than I can ever remember. The school calendar, the calendar we live by, the stores, the decorations, the commercials, the television shows, etc - all geared for Christmas. Now I'm thrilled, but I do wonder what it would be like to see all those things and be bombarded by all those things and yet not understand it or be a part of it. That would be so weird.

My friend said to me last night, you're more Jewish than you know. I suppose that's partly true. I'm a weird blend of everything I suppose, a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I always have been.

He then said, "All I had to do was to think of Jesus as a teacher and not as the Savior and I'd be going to Synagogue with him," and I said, "We'll have to agree to disagree on that one."

I'll never give believing Jesus is the Savior, not for anyone or anything.

Merry Christmas Eve to everyone ..........................
