How Will The Children Hear The Christmas Story?

We have a starfish topper on our Christmas tree this year.  Most of our ornaments have a nautical theme so, as our granddaughters were decorating our tree, they knew that a star on top was a necessity.  They strapped the starfish on with some of the garland!

They know the story of our dear Savior's birth and how the star guided the wise men to the baby Jesus.  Unbelievably, there are many children who do not know the story. They have never heard the carols of “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” or even “Away In A Manger.” They have never been to church.  The public schools have removed anything to do with Christianity.  Many will never have the opportunity to hear the story.

My prayer this year is that the Christmas story will be told far and wide.  That many who have never heard the story will hear and believe, especially the children.

Several years ago, as I was watching a Hallmark Christmas movie, I heard the song, "In The Bleak Midwinter."  I had never heard it before so was quite taken that Hallmark had included the song in the movie.
