Many years ago, our family had tickets to see Handel's Messiah at Lincoln Center in New York City. Unfortunately for me, the common cold knocked me down and I didn't get to go. My family came home that night enthralled by the beauty of the music they had heard. Handel's Messiah, I have learned, is completely composed of Scripture and tonight, at 8 o'clock, I will relish the sound of its beauty at Carnegie Hall. Do you know how happy I am? Merry Christmas!
