White Christmas in Dallas!

White Christmas Eve in Dallas, Texas!

Nothing quite like snow to make Christmas special, that is particularly true for Dallasites.  Just 24 hours ago the temperature posted in the mid-70s.

Snow in our old neighborhood makes everyting seem bright, new and hopeful. 

The fireplace blazes. 

Wrapping grandchildren's packages. 

Preparing for the candlelight service at 11:00 p.m. down at the church.

Special night for everyone, almost.

We find the rub, the challenge, the deep concern in the "almost," don't we? 

This night's beauty depends so much on your current circumstance.  What's so beautiful, so special to me presents a real problem to someone with no home or family or assets. 

So, as the snow falls, as the party begins, as the worship concludes in the moving way I expect it will, I must remember and never forget. 

Merry Christmas!  And, God bless us everyone.
