Christmas Lights

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles . . .  tangled Christmas tree lights. (Maya Angelou. Late American poet)

Whether you put them up before Thanksgiving, or wait until Christmas Eve, Angelou’s right; tangled lights can really test one’s patience! Such things can really spoil the spirit of Christmas: the joy, the sharing, the carol-singing, and especially the retelling of the true Christmas story.

(Mary) will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).
