MEMORIES...........One Christmas eve, I drove my elderly aunt home. On the way back...I had to drive down the street where I grew up. I came to where we had lived and laughed and loved...IT WAS GONE...not a sign of the dear homestead. I thought 'You can never go home again." It was sad but joyous as well. Strange how sometimes we have an experience that moves us to a certain sadness but a certain joy as well. Only God can arrange that! db

COME TO THE STABLE.............I recall that, as a little guy, it was my honor to create and arrange the manger scene beneath tree. I redid it many times. I wanted it to be perfect! PERFECT!Now I would say 'What is perfect? Only God in all His glory db

CANDY AT MASS..............In the days of my youth, you could not eat or drink after midnight if you wished to receive Comunion the next day. On Christmas morning, we would go early to Mass and bring the candy we could not eat before Communion. After Communion, we devoutly bowed our heads and covered our no one would know we were munching on the candy we had brought to Church. Jesus first...Not a bad idea after all. db

MEMORIES..........One of the dearest Christmas memories is serving the Midnight Mass in a very beautiful old church. The girls' school choir sang and made a procession to the manger carrying the image of the Infant Christ. A tiny bit of Heaven right here on earth! db
