Our Christmas Miracle

     Some people experience great manifestations of God’s love and power on Christmas.
     In our family, this year’s Christmas miracle was this:

Snowman poop.
Ron got this as a gift for Sebastian on the Feast of St. Nicholas on Dec. 6.  Sebastian had found it in his shoes, placed by the door next to his sisters’ and brother’s shoes, alongside a few other pieces of candy.
The miracle is that Sebastian has neither eaten all the “poop” nor lost the “poop.”  He carries it around faithfully, never leaving it out of his sight for more than a few minutes.  Who knew that this little vile of happiness would so capture a young boy’s heart.  Would that, one day, he would hold his love for God so dearly!
