Writing a Silent Night
The thing is, I didn't want my novel to be preachy. If I remember correctly, I don't quote scripture...at least not in an "a-ha" moment or turning point for her...and I wonder if my friends from other Christian religions might find that as a fault. I wonder if they wonder how I, as the author, feel about God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
At this most holy of days, I ponder on the miracle of the Savior's birth. I picture what it might have been like to be there, but more than that, tears come to my eyes as I think about the love that He has for me and for all mankind. I am grateful for the gift of the Savior and wish all of us peace at this time of year as we come a little closer to God through His Son.
I wish all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
