Nine days till…

Nine days till Christmas and I am getting into the feeling of this special time of year.

I love looking for quotes and on browsing for something relevant to Christmas I came across the following:-

“Somehow he [Tim] gets thoughtful sitting by himself so much, and thinks the strangest things you ever heard. He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant for them to remember upon Christmas Day, who made lame beggars walk, and blind men see.”–Charles Dickens (A Christmas Carol)

It makes me think, as it also appears to have made Tiny Tim think, about the reason for this season. Yes, it all came about because of the birth of The One who makes lame beggars walk and blind men see. I wonder, if the Son of God had not been born on that day some 2,000 odd years ago, what state would the world be in now. That could bring on a long debate, depending on your point of view…

So, along with Tiny Tim, I leave you with the hope that you will find it “pleasant to remember … who made lame beggars walk and blind men see”.
