“I’m the oldest, so let me be first,” I said to my younger
brother and sister.
It was a few weeks before Christmas, and Mother had agreed to
take us downtown to view the Holiday window
displays with all the animated figures at the major stores.
Inside the Largest store was a Santa Clause sitting on a large
throne waiting for the children with their lists of wishes.
Now I must let you know that my mother had already told us kids
that there was NO Santa Clause.
She explained that it is a story about a good man who is no
longer alive, but the story lives.Each
year, men dress up like Santa and it is sort of a game.We know the truth, but it would be fun for
you children to visit Santa and get a free candy cane.
So here we were in line waiting for our turn to tell Santa what
we wanted for Christmas and receive the free candy.
I told Santa I wanted a doll with eyes that opened and closed
and she must say Mama.Since I am the
investigating type, I looked very carefully at his disguise, and said “Thank
you,” as I took my candy.
I spoke to my brother, “Allen, it is your turn next, but look
closely at his beard and you will see a red string just under his chin.”
Perhaps Allen was not quite as observant as I was, because at
first glance, he could not see the red ribbon.He tilted his head and tried to look under Santa’s beard causing some
embarrassment to Santa.
When Allen was satisfied the beard was fake, he told Santa he
wanted an electric train and left with his free candy.

In life, all is not always as it seems.We listen to the promises of the politicians
and are confused when we discover their many lies.
We pay good money so our children can attend college to discover
many professors are teaching them to hate America
and cast away all morals learned at their mothers knee.Some middle school teachers are requiring students
to learn about the Muslim faith, and say a prayer to Allah.
Anymore we wonder what is fake and what is real.
I am reminded of the old hymn, “Standing on the Promises of
God.”It is in God’s Word that we will
find the answer to REAL Eternal Life, by following the REAL Jesus.He is the Way the Truth and the Life.
May we take a good look at the manger, the walk of Jesus, the
cross and the empty tomb, and His promise to return.
You will find that there is a red line
running all through the Bible and it is the blood of Jesus to wash away all our

P.S. At the time I wrote this, I shared this story at the
Traditional church I then attended, and when I sat down, the Pastor said, "We don't always agree with
people's opinions about politics and I doubt very much if our schools are
teaching our children to hate America and to embrace the Islam way of

(Me again) The sad thing is that our schools
began to fail many years ago when the Bible and prayer was removed from our
schools. Muslims admit they are using a system called the "Trojan
Horse." It is to slowly slip in a bit here and there until they
finally take over. Many college students are refusing to say the
pledge of Allegiance to our flag, and history books are being rewritten.
It pays to do a Google search with the questions, "Are our children being
taught to hate America
and a second question, Are our children being taught to embrace
Islam." It might surprise you what comes up when you do some
By the way - - Soon after this, I left the Traditional church and now attend a church that believes in truth.
