It was Christmas Day night and I just turned out the lights on the porch when a knock came at the door. I turned the lights back on and there was a women and her two children. She said “Christmas Eve they went to church with the grandparents. Christmas Day we opened our gifts. By Christmas afternoon the children were bored so I took them down to the basement  pool  table and we made a sleeping bag.”  As the woman extended her arms she said please accept this gift for the Christ child.

I’ve told you this story before but this is the Christmas story that lives in my heart.
