The First Family, George W. and Laura Bush, have always included a scripture
verse on their Christmas cards. Laura Bush had to change the verse on the card
in light of the Sept 11th tragedy. What verse do you use for the first
Christmas after such a trauma? She chose to use Psalm 27:13, which says,
"I am still confident in this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the
land of the living." That Psalm goes on to say, "Wait for the Lord; be
strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
