On this December 24, 2010, the Earth continues in its orbit around the sun. We’re just coming out of the longest night of the year. What a great plan the Creator has, to distribute the light and the warmth of the sun for all parts of this globe as it spins and orbits!
I’m reminded that even as we welcome the birthday of God-in-our-midst, we are dirtying the blanket of air that has been just right for our lungs. How to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions? I want to honor the gift of clean air, this wonderful Christmas gift, and make sure that generations to come will have a Merry Christmas.
