  http://www.crossandshield.org/ One of my Favorite Christmas Blessings         It was a cold December night, close to Christmas.  Blossom and I were just about to sit down to eat supper when the phone rang; it was a man named Billy.  Him, his wife and two small children; a boy 3 and a girl 4 years old, were at the Main Street Mission here in Russellville, AR.  By this time in the evening, about 6 pm, the Mission was closed.  But there were folks around.  One of those folks said, “I suggest you try calling the Chaplain.” which he did.         So I went down to meet these folks and see what we could do.  They were coming from CO. trying to get somewhere, anywhere, where things might be better.  They had lost their jobs and then their home.  They had some contacts in Southern Arkansas and thought that by coming south, it would at least be warmer than CO.  Billy told me that he and his wife were both Chr...
