Only in California:
Yesterday, we were at the Long Beach
shoreline in the morning and up in the snow in the afternoon.
This is our time
exclusively for each other, and so you will not hear from me for a
couple of days.
But before I fall
silent, I hope Christmas has
been kind and generous to you, with many gifts of the heart and
spirit, and maybe a gift certificate or two to your favorite store.
God will give me childlike faith,
The love that spans the second mile,
His grace to overcome my faults
And bear my heartaches with a smile,
If he will grant me fortitude
To form a soul of sterling worth
I'll hail these as the greatest gifts
A mortal can receive on earth!
Weldon Taylor Hammond
