I graduated from college almost 27 years ago. (Wow! That makes me feel old!) There are many memories of my college days. For some reason, one that sticks out for me was my first Christmas in the dorms. My roommate that year was from Taiwan. Our girl’s dorm hall had a door decorating contest. We spent a whole weekend decorating our door with a nativity scene, the words ‘Emmanuel, God with us’ in English and also in Mandarin (her native language). We won the ‘best religious door’ that year. Now, every time I hear the name, Emmanuel, I think about those days of door decorating. Too bad I didn’t take a picture of the door. It was really cool black and white cutout picture, similar to this...

I'm linking my post today over to

 Once again, I find myself listening to a song by Chris Tomlin, called Emmanuel.(To hear this, you can turn off my playlist on the right sidebar by hitting the big 'stop' button.)
