Always 🎄

by Candace Arthuria

A long time ago, a Baby was born into wicked and deplorable conditions. His parents cried. They didn’t quite understand. The Infant was chilly and damp. His pleas were heard in faraway places.

Two millennia pass. There remains worldwide discord. The people war and clash over unimportant things. No peace to be found among Santas, crèches, carols and hymns.

Weeping clouds drench the earth. Yet, the Savior dries their tears.

Remember that I came for you all. Rejoice! Spread the Word. I am here!

…and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

Merry Christmas.
