The Bell Still Rings For Me
Jim, Lana, Sam and Rachel Masters  rode the Polar Express  this past Wednesday evening.
This, in and of itself, was a unique experience, but to top it off, they have a ticket to visit the Sacramento California Train Museum during the holidays! 

We sure  love trains - especially Grandpa Masters who can remember the big steam engines he so admired as a young boy.

This Christmas Season is a great time to exercise and remember our faith.
Many of us, especially Grandma Masters, get a bit "choked up" when we read the very last line of Chris Van Allsburg's book, The Polar Express.

"At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them.  Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound.
Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe."

Let's be one of those blessed individuals who can still "hear the bell" and "who truly believe."
