Wonder & Amazement

This time of year is full of wonder and amazement. We are in awe of the lights, the huge displays, the smiles on children’s faces. As I grew, I wondered about the magic of Santa ... How does Santa get all around the world in one night?What does he do if there is no chimney?... Continue Reading →
