Every year, as Christmas nears, my wife and I watch A Christmas Carol in several of its many versions. Today it was our favorite, the 1951 film with Alistair Sim as Scrooge. Which brings me to this:
It can take a long time to learn that good really is much better than bad, always better: as much higher as heaven is above the earth. But not so high as to be unknowable, or unattainable. It is always as near as the next breath.
There are many people who don’t know this, and who will never know it.
But there are, thank God, many who do.
