Home for Christmas

A SHORT NOTE


There is an old saying, “You can’t go home again.” I suppose there is truth in that statement, but there are times when we need to go home, there are times when we should go home, and there are times when we can go home again. We usually do that at Christmas - we go home in our memories of a long ago Christmas that stirs good and happy thoughts of family, the living room, the Christmas tree, the excitement and the surprise of gift giving, the time of kneeling in church or before the Creche and hearing a family member read the story of the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes. There was an old song, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" that seems to share this message - I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams. Let’s go home - it is a good place for Christmas.
