Performed by:
Pamela Almand
#8 in Austin Family Chronicles

“Rather than feeling lost and unimportant and meaningless, set against galaxies which go beyond the reach of the furthest telescopes, I feel that my life has meaning. Perhaps I should feel insignificant, but instead I feel a soaring in my heart that the God who could create all this—and out of nothing—can still count the hairs of my head.” –Madeleine L’Engle Miracle on 10th Street and Other Christmas Writings includes excerpt from more than forty years of writing and reflecting on Christmas theses: advent, incarnation, epiphany, mystery, redemption, and celebration.
