  • My wife got a call recently, and it seems that two of our good friends who live on very fixed incomes were out Christmas shopping enduring the crowds and trying to give their loved ones some extra cheer this year, when they were robbed.
    While shopping at Black Bird, they parked down the street since the lot was full, and when they returned they found all of the shopping bags they had purchased earlier at other stores had been stolen.
    This letter isn't to ask for donations or to try to bring shame to those who broke into the car. What I am asking is that people would simply pray for these two people whose names you don't even know. Pray that this act of imperfection by a part of mankind will not dampen the season that focuses on the only perfect one who came to forgive the imperfections of us all, the thieves in this story included.
    God gives us the gifts of the spirit and he doesn't mind when we re-gift what he has given to us. Nobody can steal what is freely given. — James Walker, Anchorage, Alaska
