It’s rare that my family and I attend parties on Christmas eve; once in a while we do. We actually enjoy listening to carols and the Christmas message. I learned something wonderful last night for the very first time from the song: “O Little Town of Bethlehem” whose words: “the hopes and fears of all the years are met in Thee tonight…” If Jesus is named Emmanuel “God with us;” then no one who is in Him would really be alone wouldn’t he? What a message of hope for the New Year and for all things to come!
