In The First Gift of Christmas Richard Paul Evans asks, "Is there enough awe in my child, enough magic left, to save a world? For within my heart I lament a great truth - that the only promise of childhood is that it will end. And I wonder what I have given her to take its place. And is it enough?"
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. What is in your heart today? What gifts are you passing on to your loved ones - especially your children - that can't be bought or forgotten? Have you, like Richard Paul Evans, ever asked yourself, "Is it enough?" What memories and traditions will your children pass on? In the rush of the coming of Christmas - meaning Christ's mass - have you stopped long enough to contemplate the depth of its meaning? Or shared it with a child? Whether or not you believe, you have to admit, someone very special was born over 2,000 ago. For His wisdom and kindness are still surviving today. If you can pass on the joy of giving, the magic in believing in miracles, the hope the Christ child brings - it will be enough to last a lifetime. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good LIFE . . .
