    As Christmas approaches, the whole world seems to be alive with anticipation. Yet, against this cheerful backdrop of sparkling lights and festive music, there are many for whom this time is a tearful reminder of the harshness of life.

    During Advent, one of the first Christmas carols we sing at my church is “O Come O Come Emmanuel.”
    It’s a melancholy song of Israel’s lament, of their crying out to God for relief from bondage and slavery, begging God to come and free them.
    But then the chorus goes: “Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.”
    Rejoice -- to feel and/or show great joy or delight.

    Before we lose the old year, I would like to thank Lee Kendall for reviving a Christmas memory with his column last week. Lee’s writing never fails to delight this reader, but this time he really hit a home run. Yes, yes I know he favors basketball, but an old saying is an old saying whether it totally fits or not!

    On Friday, in the second half of the boy/girl double-header, Harrison County took advantage of some sloppy ball handling by Nicholas County in the first half, and cruised to an easy 59-24 win.
