As we are in that last minute rush to get things ready for Christmas, I hope we do not forget the reason for the season, and I hope each one of us will take time to reflect on the true gift of Christmas . . . the birth of the Savior. Today's picture shows Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. The picture was taken in the early 1900's but the picture probably reflects how the city looked as Mary and Joseph approached on a donkey some 2000 years ago.
