Each month, my husband John and I do a church service at a nursing home in Stuart. A sweet little lady of 95 plays the piano, a tone-deaf lady of about 80 leads the singing, I read the Scripture and John gives the message. Christmas can be a very sad and lonely time for those in nursing facilities. When I read the editorial by Rob Renfroe in the November/December issue of Good News, I was inspired to give his message to these dear people. The title of his editorial is Rob’s message is that God wants to be more than God above us, or God against us, or even God for us. It is in the heart of God to be God with us. “Why is there a Christmas?” he asks. Because God doesn’t ever want us to be alone. The certainty of Rob’s message is that God is with us and he will never forsake us. We are not alone. God is here now. If you haven’t read the article, I highly recommend it. The message is simple and filled with TRUTH.
