Among other things, Christmas is a time of reminiscence. Charles Dickens, who wrote A Christmas Carol in 1843, also wrote the following about Christmas:

Happy, happy Christmas,
that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days,
recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth,
and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home.

With all the cold weather lately, I thought I'd talk about summer. This summer we found a hornet's nest in one of our neighbor's trees that hangs over the middle of the street. Sure enough, it was Bald-faced Hornets, which we reminded me of our encounter with them a couple years ago.

Dave & Susan Michels : Campus Crusade for Christ

Treasure, it's what we would all like to find; treasure that would make our eyes sparkle with wonder and our hearts flutter with excitement.

That's what I found on campus a few weeks ago. I met Kaylie at our Cru meeting when some Cru students invited her to check it out. We talked a while and I asked her if we could meet on campus to talk more later in the week. She had told me some hard things that had gone on in her life and I felt the Lord moving me to initiate with her. So we met up the next week.
