Believing IN Christ Jesus through ALL things

(For those who have read this post at some point over the past five years of so over on my former blog at, the 2011 edition has been tweaked and edited a bit for clarity and to address some concerns that have surfaced through the years.)

At the end of the 19th century, a little girl wrote to a newspaper seeking the truth about Santa Claus. The 1897 editorial response by Mr. Francis Pharcellus Church of the New York Sun is the origin of the ever popular and oft repeated phrase ‘Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.’ For this post to have its fullest impact I would highly recommend reading the background on the story and then reading the entire editorial response of Mr. Church at the following website:

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
