The Best Christmas Gift of All

Posted by: Doug Armey | Comments Comments Off

We just arrived home from a week in Cabo San Lucas.  I know–tough life.  The resort was decorated for Christmas and yet the weather in the mid 80s.  Seemed strange for winter.

We traveled with a friend who has battled her way back from cancer.  So the trip was a victory celebration.  And celebrate we did!  Maybe a little too much?

When we got back though, reality hit as it does each week. I need to write something that will touch and help my readers.  I thought what else could I write about Christmas that hasn’t already been written?  What can I say that you haven’t already heard?

My 20 minute drive is a nice time to mentally process the day before arriving home to see Jennifer and starting our evening.

I was curious what he was saying so I rolled down my window.  But because he was yelling through the bull horn the message was garbled.  Then I saw a sign by him that simply said, “Pray Here.”
