From My Heart To Yours

Dear sweet bloggy friends, originally I had intended a different post for my Christmas message to you all. But, I heard this wonderful story and I want to share it with you instead. Because, to me, it is perfect.

 

 

 

 

A large church on the east coast was preparing for its annual Christmas program. All of the parts were assigned and a young man with downs syndrome was assigned the part of the inn keeper.

He was elated to be included in the big annual production. The Pastor, his family, friends , and church members all were encouraging him and helping him to learn his part.

On the big day the church was filled and everyone watched the beautiful program and waited in anticipation and hopefulness that the young man would be successful with his part.

As young Joseph and Mary crossed the stage and approached the innkeeper to ask for a place to stay, a hush fell over the crowd. They all waited for the young man to say his line.  “There is no room at the inn” he said clearly and perfectly.

You could hear a sigh, and see a collective smile on everyone’s face as they all were happy the young man had delivered his line so well.

As Mary and joseph walked away, the young man raised his hand in the air and said…” But, wait… there is room at my house”

When I heard this story, I cried. Not sad tears, but happy ones. This is the perfect Christmas message. There is room at my house too.

From my heart to yours I send sincere happy holiday wishes and a very Merry Christmas to all. Make Happy memories and I’ll be back next week. ( image free clipart)

 

 

 

Happy Hanukkah and Joyful Kwanzaa to everyone too. Hoping your holidays are filled with good things:-)

    Thank you so much for sharing! I am always amazed that children and those who are mentally/physically disabled are able to live the word of God without evening thinking twice. The story is a great reminder of how we should act and think all the time.
