From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 12/21/14:
|“It is because of
Heavenly Father's gift of His Son that all men-past, present, and
future-can return to live with Him who is the Father of our spirits. But
to insure that that can happen, it was first necessary for Jesus to come
to earth in the flesh to teach men by His example the correct way to
live and then to willingly give up His life and, in some miraculous way,
accept the burden for the sins of mankind.”
Thanks so much, Daniel!

Loved all the Christmas Carols and Songs, Carol.
Thank you so much, Wayne! I do love Christmas music, and I'm glad you enjoyed it as well!
I held out until the day after Thanksgiving, because I like to give every season its due, but then I turned on YouTube on my TV and have been generally pigging out on the old Christmas music of my childhood as I frantically crocheted, trying against all odds to finish up One Last Gift in time. Oh, well, as there are twelve days of Christmas, technically I still have until Epiphany, right? NO??
