    Last night I took my dad to see the Christmas light display before its over. They have a 12 Days of Christmas section where there is music playing and a light display for each of the 12 days. I could not help but think of these posts. I also wondered how I have lived 43 years and no one has ever before revealed this story to me. You would think one of the several churches over the years would have enjoyed telling this story during the holidays! Thank you. I find this so interesting.
