The Story of Christmas And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. 3 So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. 4 Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. 6 So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “ Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”[c] 15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

Dorian JeQuan Taylor, 18, of Williston and Floyd were pronounced dead at the scene. e two other ejected passengers, Kevin James Sketo, Jr., 18, and Kalen Kentrell Penny, 22, sustained incapacitating injuries and were transported to Shands UF Hospital for medical treatment.

By Kathy Hilliard Editor e Drug Task Force agents, comprised of the Levy County Sheri s O ce and the Chie” and Police Department, arrested Torry F. White, 35, a/k/a Big WhiteŽ again on Dec. 12, 2011 after a con“ dential source bought narcotics from White as part of a controlled buy. e Drug Task Force issued $120 to a con“ dential source to conduct a controlled purchase of pills from White which netted the agents 25 pink pills, later identi“ ed to be Lortabs. Lortab is prescribed by physicians for pain management. After White made the illegal drug transaction he drove away in his 2001 Chevrolet heading west on CR 345 and was stopped by agents at NW 55 Ave. Agents immediately arrested Big WhiteŽ and recovered the Sheri s O ce buy money. White was arrested for tra cking in Lortabs with the total weight being 21.5 grams. As per Florida State Statutes, anything over 4.0 grams is considered to be tra cking in drugs. Big WhiteŽ was also charged on two Levy County warrants for tra cking in oxycodone during two separate undercover buys that occurred prior to this drug deal. White is well known by the Levy County Sheri s O ce. In 1999 Big WhiteŽ was arrested for “ ve separate cocaine charges and in 2000 he was arrested on “ ve counts of cocaine charges. All of those charges were dropped. When asked why the charges were dropped, Major Sullivan answered, I dont know.Ž Information provided by the Levy County Sheri s O ce.

The Levy County Journal4ADecember 22, 2011www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 The Past and the Present Thomas Sowell Creators SyndicateIf Newt Gingrich were being nominated for sainthood, many of us would vote very di erently from the way we would vote if he were being nominated for a political o ce. What the media call Gingrichs baggageŽ concerns largely his personal life and the fact that he made a lot of money running a consulting “ rm after he left Congress. is kind of stu makes lots of talking points that we will no doubt hear, again and again, over the next weeks and months. But how much weight should we give to this stu when we are talking about the future of a nation? is is not just another election and Barack Obama is not just another president whose policies we may not like. With all of President Obamas broken promises, glib demagoguery and cynical political moves, one promise he has kept all too well. at was his boast on the eve of the 2008 election: We are going to change the United States of America.Ž Many Americans are already saying that they can hardly recognize the country they grew up in. We have already started down the path that has led Western European nations to the brink of “ nancial disaster. Internationally, it is worse. A president who has pulled the rug out from under our allies, whether in Eastern Europe Port Whine: Big Labor’s Occu-Punks OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateScru y progressive protesters locked themselves together across railroad tracks, blocked tra c and shouted profanities at police on Tuesday in a coordinated West Coast Port Shutdown.Ž Truckers lost wages. Shippers lost business. is is what the Occupy Wall Street movement calls victory.Ž Aging Big Labor bosses toasted one another from the sidelines as they declared the rebirth of the labor movement.Ž Whats really going on? Its an old-school power grab by a decrepit union wrapped in self-deluded social media do-goodism. Peace-loving agitators wielding guitars and iPhones may earnestly believe they stood up to corruption and stood up for workers this week. A socialist website promoted the port shutdown as an expression of solidarityŽ for the workers struggle.Ž One Oakland, Calif., agitator decried exploitation by capitalismŽ as the shiftless busily divided their work blockages into what they called -chortle -shifts.Ž In reality, its the young Occupiers who are being exploited as human shields for the economy-strangling agenda of the violence-prone International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). ese ignorant punks are putting the frontŽ in waterfront.Ž Few remember now that the lefts threemonth-long Day of RageŽ festivities kicked o in September at the Port of Longview, Wash. -a far cry from Goldman Sachs and the rest of New Yorks “ nancial district. Unionized longshoremen stormed the port there and took a half-dozen guards hostage. ey damaged railroad cars, dumped grain, smashed windows, cut rail brake lines and blocked a train for hours while the ILWU and AFL-CIO cheered them on. e violence followed a similar outburst in July, when longshoremen tore down a chain link fence on EGTs private property and blocked railroad tracks to prevent a grain delivery -a clear violation of the 1946 Hobbs Act, which makes it a crime to employ robbery or extortion to impede interstate commerce.Despite breaking federal law, violating a judicial restraining order and committing systematically planned sabotage and trespassing, most of the union thugs got away with wrist slaps. e ILWU received a $250,000 “ ne to cover damages from the vandalism -a “ ne that will be paid with rankand-“ le workers hard-earned dues money.So, whats their beef? No, its not about the rightŽ of unions to organize.Ž Its not about the welfare of the 99 percent.Ž Its about one union losing its seven-decade-old grip on West Coast port operations. Its about six-“ gure-salaried union suits at the ILWU, established by bloody radical Marxist Harry Bridges, throwing a lawless tantrum against economic e ciency and technological progress. e ILWU is trying to break the will of EGT Development, a multinational agribusiness that recently built a $200 million grain terminal in Longview. Its a state-of-the-art facility with unprecedented automation features that will speed unloading, increase shipping capacity and bring in tens of millions of dollars in lease and tax payments alone to the region. EGT needs a nimble 21st-century workforce. e entitled overlords of the ILWU, who have ruled West Coast ports since the 1930s, are demanding a monopoly on the companys master control system, control over the work hour structure, excessive mandatory breaks and extortionist manhour premiumsŽ to bail out the unions underfunded pension. Weve worked these elevators since 1934, and weve always been in that master console,Ž local ILWU President Dan Co man told public radio. EGT refused and instead brought in an outside contractor with a di erent union to “ ll about 50 jobs. But the ILWU water-carriers in the Occupy movement dont care about those workers. Or the American farmers who have been hurt by the port saboteurs. Or the independent non-union truckers who were forced to forgo work in the name of worker empowerment. Trucker Hai Ngo of San Leandro, Calif., told the San Francisco Chronicle:  e Occupy people handed out ” yers to us, but never asked what we thought before they planned this.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 or the Middle East, tried to cozy up to our enemies, and has bowed low from the waist to foreign leaders certainly has not represented either the values or the interests of America. If he continues to do nothing that is likely to stop terrorist-sponsoring Iran from getting nuclear weapons, the consequences can be beyond our worst imagining. Against this background, how much does Newt Gingrichs personal life matter, whether we accept his claim that he has now matured or his critics claim that he has not? Nor should we sell the public short by saying that they are going to vote on the basis of tabloid stu or media talking points, when the fate of this nation hangs in the balance. Even back in the 19th century, when the scandal came out that Grover Cleveland had fathered a child out of wedlock -and he publicly admitted it -the voters nevertheless sent him to the White House, where he became one of the better presidents. Do we wish we had another Ronald Reagan? We could certainly use one. But we have to play the hand we were dealt. And the Reagan card is not in the deck. While the televised debates are what gave Newt Gingrichs candidacy a big boost, concrete accomplishments when in o ce are the real test. Gingrich engineered the “ rst Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in 40 years -followed by the “ rst balanced budget in 40 years. e media called it the Clinton surplusŽ but all spending bills start in the House of Representatives, and Gingrich was Speaker of the House. Speaker Gingrich also produced some long overdue welfare reforms, despite howls from liberals that the poor would be devastated. But nobody makes that claim any more. Did Gingrich ru e some feathers when he was Speaker of the House? Yes, enough for it to cost him that position. But he also showed that he could produce results. In a world where we can make our choices only among the alternatives actually available, the question is whether Newt Gingrich is better than Barack Obama -and better than Mitt Romney. Romney is a smooth talker, but what did he actually accomplish as governor of Massachusetts, compared to what Gingrich accomplished as Speaker of the House? When you dont accomplish much, you dont ru e many feathers. But is that what we want? Can you name one important positive thing that Romney accomplished as governor of Massachusetts? Can anyone? Does a candidate who represents the bland leading the bland increase the chances of victory in November 2012? A lot of candidates like that have lost, from omas E. Dewey to John McCain. ose who want to concentrate on the baggage in Newt Gingrichs past, rather than on the nations future, should remember what Winston Churchill said: If the past sits in judgment on the present, the future will be lost.Ž If that means a second term for Barack Obama, then it means lost big time. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2011 CREATORS.COM By Kathy HilliardEditorGov. Rick Scott sent out a letter to Secretary Jack Miles of Management Services to close down government o ces on Dec. 23 for Christmas. It is very refreshing to hear a government o cial use the proper term for this season of Christmas and to be thinking of the employees who have been serving Florida. Below is a transcript of the letter: Dear Secretary Miles: is year has been yet another extremely di cult period for many Floridians, including State employees who diligently serve the State of Florida. State employees have not received a cost of living increase in “ ve years, yet they continue to sel” essly serve the State. During this holiday season, I would like to recognize State employees for their dedicated service. I hereby direct you to close all State executive buildings on December 23, 2011. On the day before a weekend during which Christmas falls, historically, there has been an extremely low business volume, and a large number of State employees take annual leave to be with their families. I also note that the Supreme Court of Florida has declared December 23 to be a Court holiday, and that both the Florida House of Representatives and the Senate have no business whatsoever scheduled for that date. Considering the low utilization of State executive buildings on these days, closing these buildings will also result in a savings of utilities and management costs. I wish you and your family a joyous holiday season. Sincerely, Rick Scott GovernorGov. Scott Closes O ces for ChristmasNOTICEGive us YOUR opinion!

The Levy County Journal 5ADecember 22, 2011www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923Lowman gazed at the glowing ashes of their “ re. Its from Papa, Mama?Ž e girl, Ava, wanted to know. Of course, he wrote it,Ž the boy, Sam, insisted impatiently to his sister. Is he coming home after all?Ž the girl asked with a whimper. Lowman spoke then. I am not an eloquent man,Ž he began quietly. But I can tell this. Your husband and father put that letter in my hand with his last breath. He asked that I deliver it to you. I dont know why. He was delirious by then, but not in awful pain. And I said I would do it. I did not think to make such a promise. But I made it all the same. And so, after a time,Ž his voice trailed o introspectively, I have kept my word.Ž Lowman told that Samuel Fletcher had lay dying at the Rock Island prison camp for Confederates … held as a prisoner of war in Illinois. He wrote his last one year ago this day. It was not my plan, either to deliver it on this day. I had put the letter away. As I recollect, I thought three times to destroy the letter. I thought as many times, and as late as yesterday, to simply post it by some general delivery and be shut of it. I must tell you, I did not know until this very day that I would truly put it, as I promised ƒ in your hand.Ž I thank you sir, you have been a good and noble friend.Ž I am not, madam. But I have kept my word, whethe r I intended nobly or not. Ive been faithful to my promise. Ill say that.Ž Sarah Fletcher unfolded the letter slowly with the eyes of her children upon her. Over the crackling of the “ re she began to read aloud. Her husband spoke “ rst of his love for his wife and dear children, who waited eagerly now for his every written word. He wrote of Gods will and his unwavering faith that all things come to pass come in their proper time and season. He lamented that he would not live to know them each in the fullness of those seasons that remained unto each of them. He blessed their precious lives, naming for each their special gifts and talents. ese gifts exceeded beyond all measure, any gift he himself might bestow on that Christmas Day. Yet he wrote from the stench of that diphtheria-ridden prison his prayer for each. Samuel Fletcher prayed that his family might truly live their hopes, dreams, and aspirations. At Christmas, our hearts awaken to the presence of Christ in all people, those we love easily as well as those with whom we struggle. Look for Him. You will “ nd me with Him. My only gift for you this Christmas Day,Ž Samuel Fletcher wrote his loved ones, is my own blessed assurance that I will be in Paradise, and I shall be waiting for each of you there across the golden glades of time.Ž She read the last with a tremulous voice, but read with the very strength her husband had attributed to her in what he had written. ey wept together softly before she looked up and thanked Lowman profusely for the great gift he had brought them on this special day. Lowman smiled back shyly, a smile of both innocence and knowingness. He opened his saddle bag and produced the oranges to everyones delight. ey sat close by the “ re and peeled and ate the oranges together, tossing the rinds to the “ re, making more fragrant still the warmth of the home. Lowman tactfully avoided all inquiries about himself or his family or from where hed come. He spoke of himself only as a traveler who would soon venture on. is he did. When he had had another cup of the cider and the family was in good spirits, he announced that he must take his leave. Young Sam and Ava asked that he remain a while longer. Sarah Fletcher too, but Lowman was “ rm in his resolution. So the family accompanied him to the gate. With heartfelt appreciation deepening even as she spoke, Sarah Fletcher held her bundled children close and thanked Lowman again for his coming, for the Christmas miracle of his delivering. It was Gods plan,Ž she said. You have come to us as an angel on Christmas Day.Ž Lowman stood with the reins of his horse in hand. Im not that sort of man, Mrs. Fletcher. Id be the least of men to be on an angels errand.Ž Well, we seldom know such things,Ž she replied more cheerfully as Lowman mounted. Noah was given to drink, but God choose him. Abraham lied. Jacob deceived. Moses, whom he chose to lead his people, had murdered. And what of Rahab, or Samsons ” aws? And David! Who could have done worse? But you, you were a prisoner with my husband and you brought his letter of Gods love and of Christ who su ered and so inspired our Samuels love.Ž Lowman then looked squarely upon her from his saddle. I was not a prisoner with your husband,Ž he said softly. I was his jailor. I was a guard, denigrated and con“ ned to such duty by my own o enses. I listened well to your husbands letter, Mrs. Fletcher. I ought to confess, Ive never known such love myself.Ž e woman and her children looked up at him, astonished by his revelation. I never knew such love existed,Ž he said again in a loud whisper. Before now, I never thought it was possible. So the greater gift is mine, Maam.Ž Lowman touched the brim of his hat, turned his horse and rode out a di erent way than he had come.

Lowman leaned out across his saddle horn and patted the horses neck. You alright, old fella?Ž he asked. Youre shaking yourself like a dog leaving water.Ž ey were long past the Santa Fe, the narrow river hed forded to “ nd patches of frost in the low places that morning. Lowman had rolled his blanket and canvas by a low “ re. Hed poured his thin co ee and walked down to the river with a cold biscuit to survey the crossing. e smoke of his “ re hung across the water, tracing in a wisp the sand shoal reaching nearly across. ere was a dark gap on the other side where the water ran deeper before the shadowy bank. He squatted, his eyes following the fading mar of wagon wheels out to where the water rippled over the bar. Lowman didnt see that it would be any trouble to cross. ough a North wind blustered in occasional gusts, the sun had warmed the day. Lowman rode out the ” ats where a broad glade of myrtle and marsh grasses lay. e road was boggy through there, but by early afternoon he had reached a span of sand hills thick with rosemary. en the road was ” at again and he could see far down to a crossroads where a store stood. It was a solitary, wood-framed building with a false front that obscured its gabled roof. It sat on a muddy corner out from the winter stubble of a cotton “ eld. An older woman out back was stirring a wash pot on a fatwood “ re. She wore a mans crumpled hat and a ratty blanket as a shawl over her long skirts. She smoked a small clay pipe and watched warily as Lowman road up in his long black coat and hat low over his eyes. He lost sight of the woman coming around in a slow walk to the front of the store. Down the road south a wagon was coming. Lowman dismounted and tied his horse at the hitching post. His boots were muddy on the board planking before the recessed door. e woman came in through the back while Lowman examined one of the sweet potatoes in a basket inside. How do traveler? You come a ways, by the look of ye.Ž Lowman acknowledged with a nod and put the potato back. When she was behind the counter, the woman said, Whatll you have, stranger?Ž  at Arbuckles,Ž he said over his shoulder. Co ee, and what else? You got your needs, same as everbody else, I reckon. Tobacky ?Ž I dont take it.Ž He tossed a coin to the counter top. She saw the long gash of a scar over the back of Lowmans hand before it was buried back into the pocket of his coat. You oneum still stragglin back from the war aint cha?Ž He didnt answer, but just pocketed the co ee. North or South?Ž she asked, eyeing him curiously with her pipe in hand. West, as the road goes,Ž Lowman answered dryly. Imah askin where you stood. Dont matter to me none. My ol man, he werent on neither side. Sold to both on the Suwannee … whiskey, tabacky … ta whoever come by. Could ah been either one what shot him. I dont hold no grudges. Mightah shotim myself someday, if some rotter hadnt got him “ rst.Ž Lowman looked up at the woman and nodded, as if to say he believed her. A wagon pulled up outside and a small man with long gray hair beneath a dusty bowler hat reined back on the horses. He sprang spryly to the ground. Lowman saw through the tall front window that he had a hamper of oranges in the buckboard along with other assorted produce. e woman came out ahead of Lowman. Howdy, Rose. Saved my last hamperah oranges for ye,Ž the wagoner declared. I dont know as I want your dregs?Ž she squawked. No, these are as “ ne and sweet as any ever tasted,Ž the wagoner boasted. Lowman bought three from the woman, right o the wagon. Heah,Ž she says. Take a nutherin. One more fer good tidings. Be your Christmas tomorrow, or does ye even know the day of it?Ž Lowman stood pensively with the oranges in hand, as if weighing these against a vacant thought he held. He thanked her then with a solemn nod. e woman took his gesture as one of gratitude, sincere albeit reluctant and muted. She shook her head, perplexed by his solemnity and turned back to the wagoner for more lively banter. Lowman rode on westerly on the muddy road through ” atwoods then, woods bleak with the wind tossing in “ ts the brown grasses ” agging before the dark pines. By late afternoon, he sat in his saddle before the Joppa post o ce. ere was the ring of a hammer on metal from the livery across the road. Lowman waited, as if deliberating. Finally he got down and tied his horse loose so it could water from a trough hued from a large cypress log. When he tried the post o ce door it was locked. e hammering stopped and when he turned, there was a stout, bearded man with his sleeves rolled up standing at the gaping door of the livery stable. Shes closed,Ž the blacksmith called out. Lowman led his horse over. Itll be after tomorrow, being Christmas and what not,Ž the blacksmith said. Ifen you got a letter, I guess I could hold it for her, long as you leave for the post.Ž How about board?Ž Lowman asked. irty cent, if you mean for your horse. eres rooms in a public house up by the fork, but them people is with fever. I dont recommend it right now. Another “ ve cents, I reckon you can lay in here, if you dont mind bedding on the hay.Ž I dont,Ž Lowman replied. Lowman slept that night bedded down in the loft. e horses stirred below in the dark and a goat the smith kept nagged and shu ed about. But he slept well and woke before daylight wrapped in his blanket and tarpaulin. He was warm and felt strangely at peace with himself, more so than he had in quite some time. He knew this was the day he would do what he had to do, what he ought to do. He would see it through, he determined, in the spirit for which the day was intended. Lowman rode out at “ rst light. e wind had abated in the night and now a mist lay low over the road ahead. He bent in the saddle and buttoned up his long black coat. He rode a switching back and forth to the better rut of the road through a “ eld of weeds burnt by the heavy frost. Not much farther, he came to the fork in the road. e lower fork, the smith had said, peeled o for Bronson. Lowman took the other one for Levyville. By midafternoon he had come to the town through a small pecan grove alongside a house where a doctors shingle hung. In the open ground ahead stood a small hamlet, simple and orderly against the steel blue sky. Lowman rode in not knowing exactly which home he sought. A dog barked from a distance. e barking stopped when Lowman stopped. He dismounted where a Confederate war widows ribbon had been fashioned at the gate. Resolute with all that was behind him now, he tied his horse and entered the yard. He shouldered his saddle bags up to the front door. e door brandished a holy sprig laden with red berries. Lowman knocked. When the door opened, a cheerful woman, full-“ gured in gray with a red scarf knotted at her collar, greeted him. Her smile was radiant, even if questioning. A daughter about eight years old peered shyly from behind her skirt. A son of 11 wedged forward, holding himself entirely erect, as if to say to the stranger,  ere is a man in this house.Ž My name is Lowman. Im looking for the family of Samuel Fletcher. I have come a long way to keep a promise made. You knew him! You were with him?Ž the woman gasped. Yes, I was.Ž Lowman said removing his hat. He then produced a letter from inside his long coat. e envelope was stained and frayed. e woman recognized instantly her husbands writing across its front. She reached for it with both hands as if she feared the letter might turn to vapor before her eyes. Please do come in,Ž she insisted, bringing the letter to her breast. Forgive me. You must surely have come a long way, Mr. Lowman.Ž Sarah Fletcher would not accept Lowmans refusal. e house was warm and well-lit with a brightly burning “ re. He sat, according to her gesture, in a chair the boy pulled close to the hearth. She o ered a hot cider from the stove and he took it thankfully. e woman sat in another chair by the “ re and her children settled about her knees. e letter had never left her hand and now she studied it intently as

My wife Angie was right there in the fray, elbowing her way out into the aisle, determined to snap a roll or two before the kindergarteners could even bellow out their “ rst Christmas classic. Our son Joshua wasnt hard to spot. He was the one in the bright red pants. You see, hed been picked by his music teacher to play Santa in the skit that was to follow. To my chagrin, Joshua hadnt scanned the crowd like the other kids when they “ rst “ led out. He just marched along watching the music director. I appreciate him trying to be obedient and all, but we werent out there waving like we hadnt seen him in months for nothing. Hes got to learn to recognize his peeps,Ž I murmured. It all had me concerned. Something wasnt right. Josh seemed too serious. I started to think, What if hes eaten up with the stage fright?Ž at wouldnt do. ere were two or three hundred people here. Id already warned him how one little mistake might ruin our whole family name. Surely he wouldnt be knuckling under pressure; not after that great pep talk? Id bitten my nails down to the quick by the time Angie got back. Hes barely singing,Ž I protested, What if he freezes up?Ž She whirled on me like a hormonal she-bear protecting her cub, Hush up Grinch!Ž Several parents gave me the eye. After the last song, Joshua and a handful of other kids got into costume and took their places. Most were working animal puppets. Josh stood alone out front. His sagging little white beard was slung low. Every eye in the cafeteria was on him. I began to panic. Does he know his lines Angie? Did you study with him? Ill bet he doesnt remember his lines!Ž I was coming unglued. Angie growled. I ” inched, thinking Id heard her razor sharp claws sliding out. ankfully it was just her “ lm advancing, and she slid o down the aisle with her paparazzi buddies; snapping more pictures than a Japanese tour group at Graceland. By then I was sweating bullets and experiencing shortness of breath. Turns out, however, Joshua didnt have any lines. His job was to act out a series of activities while his teacher narrated. He drank some hot chocolate. No problem, Id seen him do that at home. He feed some animals, and did well, considering he wont do that at home. Finally he decorated the Christmas tree, calmly arranging the ornaments and placing a bag full of colorfully wrapped presents beneath. He didnt try to open a single one of them like he wouldve at home! Before you know it, Ho ho hoŽ and the play was over. e crowd went wild! Well, maybe not wild, but they clapped. I know I did. My boy had been a hit; a real pro. Was there ever any doubt? Im sure I saw him wink at me. You did great son!Ž I said ru ing his head afterwards, Howd you snag the best part in the whole play?Ž Josh looked up humbly, Cause Im nice to Randy.Ž As he ran o I shot a queried look toward Angie. She pulled me aside. His teacher told me Randy is a little autistic boy whos really taken up with Joshua.Ž I was ” oored. I guess Id been expecting to hear hed gotten the part because of the superior acting genes passed down through his good ole dad. Now I was left trying to swallow this big lump in my throat. Joshua had gotten the part because of the superior Love shed abroad in his little heart by his Heavenly Father. (By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35 KJV) But anywayWhat do you say to a kid that just blows past your wildest expectations? Little Joshua may have been wearing a Santa suit that day, but deep down its obvious he was clothed with the true meaning of Christmas. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.
