Yes Joseph a tree right there in their Homes they brought in a tree in my dream the tree was All decorated with pretty lights. The branches were full of shiny balls sparkling ornaments. I think i saw a figure on top of the tree an Angel i think it was anyway it looked How an Angel might look. Of it was beautiful1 everyone was laughing Happy. They were All excited about the girls. They gave the gifts to each other Joseph not to our son. In fact i think that some of the people didst even know our son. They never mentioned his name. Does t it seem Odd for people to go through All that trouble to celebrate someone s birthday if they Don t even know him i had the strangest feeling that if our son had gone to this Celebration he would have been intruding everything was so Beautiful Joseph everyone so full of cheer but it made me want to cry. How sad for Jesus our son not to be wanted or even mentioned at his own birthday Celebration i m so glad it was a dream Joseph. How Terr Ible if it had been real. This week As we celebrate Christmas remember that Jesus is the reason for the season it is his birthday we celebrate when you gather on Christmas morning or whenever you open your gifts take a quiet moment to thank he or Savior our King remember to give Jesus your heart some of your time on up god our father for the greatest gift of All the gift of hts Only son Jesus Christ our Savior our Christmas Day.
