Christmas Back Home


Growing you in Basile, LA we were a close family. Every Christmas was at our grandparents. Of course that was one of the most wonderful times of the year. All our aunts, uncles and cousins would show up with the first and most important thing being Dinner. My, O my, what fantastic meals we had with everyone bringing their best foods and desserts. It was a growing boys dream come true… all the food I could eat, rest, and eat again. Wow! Then the giving of the Christmas presents, no one was left out, even our friends who were invited had a gift under the tree. The afternoon was the football game; cousins, uncles, and Dad, all of us divided into two teams and the game was on. I can not remembering who won any of the games, because we all won… the victory was being part of the family game. All this was because of a stranger who came to earth over 2000 years ago, and willing died for all mankind. With His birth salvation entered our world and at His death, sin’s penalty was paid, then at His resurrection everlasting life was proven and given to all who would trust Him. Those holidays of years gone by or those we will celebrate this year are all the blessings of a Loving God who sent that stranger into our world to live sinnlessly, die vicariously, and rise victoriously… Jesus Christ, His beloved Son.
