A25: Advent Meditation – Day 17

When Herod saw that the wise men had tricked him, he was furious. So he  gave an order to kill all the baby boys in Bethlehem and in the surrounding area who were two years old or younger.

This was the girl I would spend the rest of my life with, and I knew it. Earlier, we had walked through the small New York town of Rush. We held hands and laughed. We dreamed and ate chocolate.
