Christmas Letter from Lori

Dear Friends in Christ,

In one strip of the comic, For Better or For Worse, by Lynn Johnston, brother Michael is reading the Christmas story to his little sister. Michael says, "So, they got the baby, see an’ they put him in the manger. An’ angels were on the roof – an’ there was this star .... An’ then these three wise guys ’cided to bring presents, so they go on their camels an’ brought gold an’ two other things. By this time, there was sheep an’ farmers all ·over the place – with everyone comin’ in to see the baby!" The mother has snuck into the room and interrupts the story. "Michael, I don’t think you’re reading that story exactly the way it’s written!" "I don’t have to," replies the young lad. "I know it off my heart!"     . . . continued »
