A Christmas Letter I Received Here at Ventriloquist Central

With the holiday season totally upon us today in the mail a Christmas card arrived address to me and my wife Helen. I did not recognize the senders name nor address on the envelope so I asked Helen if she did but she didn’t either.

Helen proceeded to open the envelope and there was a plain Christmas card saying Merry Christmas and peace. It was unsigned. Inside the card was a folded letter addressed to us and it was SO special I had to share it with everyone.

Before you read the letter let me tell you that my son Jason is a professional magician and works nights performing close up table magic at restaurants.

He also does parties and weddings and corporate functions and magic is his life. He started doing magic at age nine and never stopped ever and always said he wanted to be a magician and this is what he is. He is now thirty years old and I can call him a magician.

Now read the letter and this is the best Christmas gift a parent can ever receive.

    Dan, your joy aligns with divinely inspired King Solomon’s words in the Old Testament: “The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice, and he who begets a wise child will delight in him.”(Proverbs 23:24) Makes the trials of parenting worth it all; eh, Dan? Enjoy your joy – you’ve earned it God bless, Pastor John in VA
