Mystery and Surprise

Last December this card appeared in our mailbox. 
No envelope. 
It's completely handmade, right down to the liquid correction on line six.
I have to say, I was completely charmed!
Efforts to uncover the secret "MESSENGER" were in vain, 
and I'm so glad. 

Clearly, the MESSENGER gets it - 
mystery and surprise are indispensable Christmas ingredients. 

What about you - have you experienced a Christmas mystery? 
Is there a Christmas miracle in your past? 
Share the story along the way this month and make someone's holiday sweeter!

And speaking of Christmas stories ...

Here's the first little bit of my story, "Gwen's Silent Night":
Gwen brushed the snow from her collar and entered the nave, eyes downcast. A warm wave of scent, evergreen and candlewax, rushed around her tardy family of four, their only greeting. Gwen slid into the back pew after her husband, slipped the baby from her hip and unzipped his snowsuit in one fluid motion. She settled him on her lap and ran a shaking hand over the hat-loosened braids of her daughter.
