Proverbs 13:20; Matt. 2: 1-12; Rom. 10:9
Oh, didn't you love "Oh, Holy Night"? My goodness! Randy, Janean, and Kricket, you know, I love Christmas songs and that's my favorite and sometimes during Christmas, usually, if I could ever find Leigh gone and my neighbors gone on both sides, I sing Oh, Holy Night and it's just great, great, song that I love at Christmas time.

It went against human nature but yet they chose to obey and understand later and what a truth for us to learn that if we would just learn to trust God and do what He says --that what Mary and Joseph did--do what He says--believing that in time you will understand and you will know that you made the right choice.
And so today we move to the Wise Men.
