The forecasters have no idea what the weather will be! Each time we've had a wind and/or snow warning, it was calm and/or not snowing! The only time we've had a major snowfall so far this year (about 5 inches), the forecast was for 1 inch! At any rate, we've had plenty of snow so far!
This Christmas, I'm focusing on the mystery. So often religion is criticized if it isn't "practical". Well, perhaps some parts of our faith aren't "practical"! Some parts of our faith are so much a part of the things of heaven, that they have nothing to do with the world and so don't seem practical at all!
