This Is War

Advent means coming. We often think of Advent as the time a baby is born, meek and mild, and laying in a manger no crying He makes (yeah right!). We often think of cozy little hay beds and fluffy winged angels and shepherds with red cheeks. I wonder, did the cattle barn have Christmas lights? […]
