Every So Often . . .

31 Oct

I see a story that’s so “real” that–even though it has nothing to do with law, politics or economics–I feel compelled to post it on my blog.

Here’s an example.  It’s about a man (Ronnie Greene of Mascot, Tennessee) who really does seem to have the “spirit of Christmas” year around.

I know this article will be read by some “Grinch” who won’t be able to resist telling us that there is no Santa Claus, that Christmas is pagan holiday, etc.  Maybe so.  But if there’s no Christmas, there still is charity and the man in this video has the “spirit of charity” year around.

This video reminds me of a Frank Capra movie out of the 1940s (It’s A Wonderful Life, Meet John Doe, etc).  It gives us a glimpse of a “reality” that’s seldom seen or even imagined anymore.

    Thank You, and thank Ronnie. Makes me think of the Parable of the Silver Smith. Heat it up over and over, and take the dross off. Ask the Silver Smith, how do you know when its ready? He replied, that’s easy, when I can see my perfect reflection back. The Silver Smith was God.

    Hey Al,

    Its always good see a feel-good story posted. We so often just see the drudgery of all the ills that make the headlines; and while situational awareness is a paramount concern, the pluses that come from man being Christlike are definitely worth the report. Thanks again! I wish more folks up here in Eastern Oregon would follow suit.
