Christmas. Families are trying to recapture it from Madison Avenue, but the task isn't easy. Finding islands of serenity in the midst of commercial cannonading will not occur by default. They must be searched for. Instead of concentrating Christmas into one 24 hour period, many families extend the season from Thanksgiving Eve to Epiphany by sharing one Christmas in My Heart story with the entire family each day. The result is a new vision of the Lord, whose birth, death, and resurrection we celebrate, and a deeper commitment to service for others.
In the house of Christmas there are many books and many stories. Most have no more vibrance than a week-old bouquet of flowers. Not so with this collection. Not a single story is included unless it shakes you to the core of your being. Unless it moves you to laughter and tears. Unless it bypasses the tinsel and hype in order to find the Reason for this sacred season. Such stories are as scarce as emeralds. To fill a book such as this, the past must be mined for those great stories that have stood the test of time. If you love old-timey stories, this book is for you and your loved ones.
