Carol Perkins: Being a part of church at Christmas time

For those children who don't have a church to attend or a Christmas program to in which to participate, I urge parents to take them. If you can't, at least send them. Some of my happiest times growing up was with my extended church family. - CAROL PERKINS
Next earlier Carol Perkins column, the hilarious: Historic moment in Upton, KY

By Carol Perkins

For as long as I can remember, I have been part of a church. For as long as I can remember, we have celebrated the birth of Jesus with a manger scene, shepherds, wise men, Joseph and Mary, and angels. As a small child, I was an "angel in training," which meant when I was middle school age, I became a "grown-up" angel. The costumes never changed. When I was a senior, I narrated the program, which was a huge honor and responsibility. I never forgot that Ruth Butler had enough faith in me to put me in that spot. I was a nervous wreck before I began, but I remember feeling a calm come over me as the candles flickered in the windows and the children took their places at the manger scene. God's hand at work.

Story From National Weather Service

On December 3, 1991, after calling his wife to let her know he would be late coming home, Combs left his Lexington law office about 5:30 pm. After several hours passed he was reported missing. Law enforcement and hundreds of local people searched for the former governor.

The following day his partially submerged car was spotted in the swollen Red River near Rosslyn in Powell County just several hundred feet from the parkway that bore his name.

Temperatures had been in the 30s when Combs drove into the floodwaters. The rain that had been falling changed to snow overnight as the mercury fell into the 20s.
