These women and men, many of whom have limited mobility and fading memories, immediately joined the singing. The Christmas carols that they had learned as children and had sung throughout the years came forth from deep within them. In fact, many knew the words better than we did. Who knows what they were remembering or perhaps missing? Maybe they didn’t even know.
Memories can be both bitter and sweet, but the smiles and singing that came forth from these folks was the Christ’s message of the peace of God that passes all understanding (Philippians 4.7).
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4.7
