One of the things young actors learn about performing is the importance of an audience. In live theater you never know what kind of response you’ll get until it happens and each time it’s performed the audience reaction can be different.

In the drama that has unfolded over these past few weeks of Advent, the characters have been introduced – the stage set – all the important messages  have been expounded upon and now it’s time to present it  to the largest crowd known in the history of man.  How will it be received?  Will folks look at it as just another fable?  Will it have any relevance in their own lives?  Will they take it to heart and tell others about it?

The Christmas story has been portrayed in many different ways over the centuries.  I think there are two main reasons it has had such a long run.  First of all, it’s a true story.  It really happened!  I know this because God inspired men to write about it through His Holy Spirit.  It has stood the test of time.  Even though Christmas is slowly getting shrouded by commercialism – the plot never changes and it still commands an audience.

Secondly, it’s the greatest love story ever told.  It shows us how much God loves us – how He arranged for our redemption – how He came to us in the flesh and became like us (only perfect) – how He was subjected to humiliation, scorn and died a horrific death – and how He conquered death and rose again, just as we will after our death,

The curtain is about to go up again in a week.  We are the audience.  Will we receive it with rave reviews or turn it aside?  Trust me, this is the best ticket in the world.  If you believe by faith, you’ll find that this simple story has an amazing ending!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
