Christmas is nearly here! And as a special gift to you, we wanted to share with you the Christmas story we sent to homes this month.  

We pray you'll enjoy this story with your friends and family as you prepare your hearts for the celebration of Christ's birth. 

The rain of autumn had slowly turned into the sleet of winter as Oscar and his mom walked down the street to do some early Christmas shopping. Oscar's seven-year-old hand was wrapped up in his mother's as they navigated other pedestrians, being sure to keep away from the sidewalk edge where impatient traffic stopped and started to the rhythm of changing lights. 

It was always a thrill for Oscar when he and his mom went into the city.
