Three Days Before Christmas / by Dave Hileman

This is based on the Charlie Brown Christmas, a favorite of mine. But I got it because it also reminds me of the dozens of kids dressed in bathrobes and towels, foil crowns and glitter halos that Cindy and others prepared each year for the Christmas pageant at the various churches we served. The memories are wonderful and the kids unpredictable except that the had a super time. And Mary - whomever was Mary, always took it as a serious honor.

“Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her mind.” Luke 2:19 NIV
