It's December........

Haven't heard from any of you for quite a while. I know. So many things to take care of. Just wish we could get together and share. Travelling through these days until Christmas, I sense that each of us have stories to be told. Guess I'll start it, with a "I remember......"

I remember the Christmas we had at the church. Someone cut down a tree from Lookout Mountain. It graced our sanctuary. Baubles and bulbs be-dececked its branches. We gathered together. How I wish that we would do that, right now. We sang songs. We became one. I think, that people, other than Methodists, came to join in! We loved that time. We loved being together. We loved being in a special moment in our lives.

We loved Charlie Cable, encouraging us to sing the hymns of Christmas~! I will never forget Shirley and Bob Brown's son, playing "Silent Night," in a country-version, that will never be forgotten! I still see him. Still hear him play. God must have sat back and said, "All is well!"

I wish you a Merry Christmas. I wish you a time.....a time to sit back, relax, and know that Santa is still around....whether you've been naughty or nice....and he's leaving something under your tree...something that says, "Aren't you're glad you're CV?????!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSS!
