It is Christmas day and while sitting in church this morning, our priest began his homily talking about ‘roots’. Guess I am now a true genealogist; you can imagine what first thought went through my mind! Was he really going to talk about genealogy? Really?!
He also talked about remembering how to keep the meaning of the season real and fresh. As with any clergy, he received many, many cards and letters from his parishioners, especially little children. He infused his sermon with snippets of the many messages – from compliments on his singing becoming much better to the traditional Merry Christmas. Their message to the priest was simplistic, honest, and truly spoken from the heart. How often do we as adults forget to keep life manageable and honest?
Today, we all celebrate in one way or the other the reason for the season. I wish everyone that today and everyday will be blessed with all things good.
