Santa Season at the Mall

My good friend Lee, who has helped me with this blog (which I have sadly neglected) has completed six years of being one of my special helpers at a mall near where he lives.

He tells me stories about the children and their parents, and about how it has affected his celebration of the Christmas season. But he still keeps Christ at the center of it - as do I.

He even wrote a poem/prayer I like:

A Mall Santa's Prayer

As I hold each precious child
let me treat each one
with the love and care I'd show
Your most holy Son.
