We need to really sit down and think about the real meaning of Christmas which was the celebration of the first coming of Jesus Christ, for in that short thirty-three years that he spent in human form on earth, he began a fervor and a desire for truth and light that can never be taken away. No matter how many threats Christians face and how many of us must die as martyrs, we know that if we stand by our faith in Him and live our lives according to His wishes we will live forever. What could ever be greater than love like that? Of course, the answer is nothing.
Music is one of the best ways to get in the proper mood for any special occasion and so I want to recommend a special musical performance in preparation for Christmas. The singer is Becky Kelley of St. Louis, and the Christmas song is "Where's the Line to See Jesus." Ms. Kelley is accompanied by her father in a beautiful rendition of a unique but touching song for the season. If this doesn't get you in the proper framework for Christmas, I don't know what will.

I hope you find it as moving as I did. Enjoy.
