The most important thing about the Christian life is not what God gives you, but rather that he gives you himself. Relationships are a great deal more important than possessions.

In first grade, our teacher asked us to pen a letter to Santa for

She asked us, “Name one present you would like Santa to bring you for

Then we were to write a letter to Santa, who, according to her, lived at
the North Pole, and tell him what we wanted for Christmas and why we 
wanted it. Then, we put it in an envelope and she mailed it to the 
North Pole. 

At the time, I thought my teacher had a connection with Santa Claus. She
said so many nice things about him that she must have known him 
personally. Accordingly, I thought a letter delivered to him by my 
teacher would have credit. 

The other night the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were
sitting around drinking some hot cocoa and thinking about Christmas. 
She had just put up the Christmas tree with all of the decorations. She 
does such a wonderful job that I let her do it. 

Actually, one year I did try to help her and it was a catastrophe to say
the least. Since then, I am to watch and fetch and that's all. The 
Christmas decorations are wonderful and create a Christmasy spirit. 

As I was admiring the Christmas decorations, I happened to mention to
her about the first grade letter to Santa. I casually said, “I guess 
Santa never got my letter.” 

Looking at me she said, “Why do you say that?” 

I chuckled and said, “I never got a pony for Christmas.” 

Together we laughed and then she said something that caused me to pause.
“Do you want a pony for Christmas this year?” 

The way she looked at me when she asked that question, I thought she was
being serious. It caused me a little bit of pause because what in the 
world would I do with a pony now. 

Then, I'm not one to let a situation go without playing it for all it's

With a very serious look on my face, I said to her, “I sure would love
to have a pony this year. It would make my Christmas just wonderful.” 

“Well,” she said rather sarcastically, “you'll have to send a letter to
me if you want that pony this year.” 

After a few moments of silence, we both broke out laughing. 

Where in the world would we put a pony in the Parsonage? What in the
world, would I do with the pony in the Parsonage? 

Actually, I had not thought about that letter to Santa for a very long
time. It is amazing what you do when you are young and then years later 
for some reason you remember it. 

Then in the middle of all of this pondering, my wife hit me with the
question that I'm still not sure about. 

“Okay, what do you really want for Christmas this year?” 

I can think of many things. Pens, books and pocketknives to add to my
collection. I can never have enough of these things. But, is that what 
I really want for Christmas this year? 

Pondering the question, I could not come up with a serious answer. 

To try to throw her off her guard, I said to her, “First, tell me what
you would like for Christmas this year.” 

I thought she would give me a well-documented list of gifts that she
would like for Christmas. She is so organized in everything she does I 
was pretty certain she was organized in this area as well.
