|Christmas in England 2002|
As with our Wedding anniversary today, Christmas should remind us of life, of a life lived in love of that Baby Jesus. Ray never ceases to amaze me with the thoughts he puts in poems. A few days ago I made a remark about how the falling rain had refreshed the dry and dusty trees and flowers along the road.
The Freshness of our love remains
Though years have come and gone
It remains vibrant and strong,
Strengthened by life’s strains
When times are dry with pain
A secret river still flows
Where only God knows
And the source maintains
With Heaven’s refreshing rain!

May we ever hold close the “special memory” that God’s love has forever been shown in the Christ who began his earthly life in a cradle and died for us on a cross.
