Twas the week before Christmas and all through Texoma shoppers were shopping, and children were writing their list to Santa. Cookies and candy, pies and other sweets were being baked. Trees were being decorated and gifts were being wrapped. But wait, let’s all stop for a moment and remember the real reason for Christmas. The baby in the manger sent from God to save mankind. COVID-19 or not, He is our rock and shelter and will be here for us long after the pandemic is gone.
Stay safe! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
