He is well up in age, been around the block and absolutely doesn't believe with all his heart that people should rise to the occasion once a year every year to give, to care, and to watch over their fellow man. He was adamant about it, had a smile on his face when sharing, and spoke succinctly and without hesitation while visiting in a Christian store
HERE'S THE CRUX OF THE MATTER
After he finished explaining to me in no uncertain terms, I then repeated back to him."So, you don't believe in this special time of year the gift giving and being merry"..is that your position? He said yes, drew a deep breath and spoke the following:
CHRISTMAS IS A YEAR LONG THING
Christmas should be in your heart all year long. If I see someone who is in need, then I act upon it and I don't need to wait or hesitate. I was raised rather well off and I know what it is to have and I want people to have what they need. If I see that I can help I then get to helping. I have traveled overseas and across 48 states practicing this
SUFFERING AND PAIN
I have seen poverty, pain, suffering and huge needs and I did something about them for 65 years. I have my father to thank for that. Everywhere I went, people were glad to receive the help.
TWO HANDS BECAME ONE
I smiled, and a friendly force brought our hands up to where they clasped together and I was one with this man in a brief moment and remain a better man for it. He shared that he has never stopped celebrating Christmas
Well done sir....
