Christmas funny by I was sitting in my office on the first Sunday of December. Outside in the courtyard of our church the men were in the process of building the stage for a live nativity scene. As my door was open I overheard 2 of the children discussing the process. One asked the other, “What is this going to be?” The other answered, “Oh they are building a live fertility scene.” – Walter Lauster.

Our youngest daughter Nancy was almost 4. My wife and I and our 4 older children had tried to prepare Nancy for Christmas by talking with her about the real meaning of Christmas and why our family celebrated it. Nancy had a wonderful Christmas with a lot of presents and toys. A few days later, she was talking with her older sister about what a great Christmas she had, and said, “I sure hope Mary and Joseph have another baby.”
