As 2/3s of the world gets ready to celebrate the birth
of a child of 2007 years ago.... on Sunday, we, a group of
over a 100, stood in silence for at least a half an hour before
the event started... The silence was even more noticeable with
children amidst us.
And the snow with its big flakes fell on us. We all stood in
silence, and in support of a family, who was there to bury
their young son of 7 weeks. All of us, with heavy hearts...
even with knowing that the infant was going to heaven to
join the very child that we, as Christians, celebrate the
And even as the snow started to fall more, and
most of us stood there bareheaded, children and the adults
were silent as the words were spoken. And sang the songs.
And as we walked back to our car, and getting in as we looked
back... our hearts ached for the family, as we saw the father and
older son, start to bury the beautiful hand made casket made by
the father. As the snow changed back to the slowly dropping large
flakes of snow.
A moment that didn't escape us, as we talked about it at the luncheon after.
God be with you all.....
