Remembering Christmas

By: Dan Walsh

In this story we are introduced to Rick Denton who has been living life the way that he pleases and with no one to answer to.Things take a turn for Rick when he receives a desperate call from his mom asking him to please come and help run the family store as his stepfather is seriously ill and she really needs his help. Little does Rick know that what started out as a short term job turns into weeks worth of work as his stepfather takes a turn for the worse. Rick has to come to terms with the things of his past and must also look deep inside for the new him if he wishes to achieve the happiness that awaits him in the future.

Dan Walsh has done it again and I am once again very pleased with the story that he has written. I think that many of us who have been through some of the things that these characters have faced will really get a lot of insight from this story. I especially love the message of Faith in this story and the Belief that no matter the situation God has it all in control. We must all learn to have faith in God and to believe that if He has said something in his word that he will fulfill it to the letter. There is no problem to hard for God and no situation that he can not turn around and make it into a blessing. There are a lot of people out there who wonder and ask the question, Why is this happening to me? Sometimes the Lord allows things to happen to us not because of any particular thing that we have done but as a wake up call to others who may be around and watching how we handle things. Everything that happens to us can be used as a testimony to show others the way to God and that he is but testing our faith and commitment to him.
