Do You Hear What I Hear?

During WWII American soldiers were going through a small European village searching house to house. They were looking for snipers, enemy soldiers, and civilians that might be hiding from the Nazis. In one basement they found an inscription on the wall. Evidently someone had been hiding there. There was a star of David drawn on the wall and these words...
I believe in the sun, even when it does not shine.
I believe in Love, even when it is not shown.
I believe in God, even when He does not speak.
Faith, it helps us to see the unseen. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Faith also helps us hear things others might not. During this time of the year I hear God speaking loudly to all who will listen. He is reminding everyone of His Son's birth. Listen to the music in the Mall. Christmas songs that remind us why we celebrate this time of the year. Nativity scenes, greetings of Merry Christmas. Gifts given and received, reminding us of the the greatest gift of all...Christ. Families traveling to be with one another and share their love. God is not silent, He is not whispering , He is screaming to us that this is all about Christ. Can you hear it? Listen. Do you hear what I hear?
