When I was in the 6th grade I had a very good teacher by the name of Mr. Webb. He asked us to write a paper on the meaning of Christmas to us.
I can’t remember the whole writing, but I remember talking about Jesus being born with the animals in the manger and how I always liked to be with and take care of animals on Christmas. To me back then and still now it seems that the keeper of animals and those that live with and tend the land and animals are real close to God.
I think this is the time of year that it is very special to a keeper of God’s creation. Don’t forget what Christmas is for.
Have a blessed and meaningful Celebration of Christ’s Birth.
