An Excerpt from A Christmas Memory:
Just to give you a feel for this classic Christmas tale, I wanted to include one of my favorite lines from the book. As a young boy and an elderly woman fly a kite together, the elderly woman says the following:
“My, how foolish I am! You know what I’ve always thought? I’ve always thought a body would have to be sick and dying before they saw the Lord. And I imagined that when He came it would be like looking at the Baptist window: pretty as colored glass with the sun pouring through, such a shine you don’t know it’s getting dark. And it’s been a comfort: to think of that shine taking away all the spooky feeling. But I’ll wager it never happens. I’ll wager at the very end a body realizes the Lord has already shown Himself. That things as they are, just what they’ve always seen, was seeing Him. As for me, I could leave the world with today in my eyes.”
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
