One evening I arrived home from work to find the lights out. My wife had prepared a lovely candlelit dinner and our two young sons, Garett and Seldon, were dressed in their suits.
“Hey,” I joked, “didn’t we pay our hydro bill?”
A few months later, during the Christmas Eve candlelit procession, the church was packed and silent when Garett asked, “Hey, Dad, did they not pay their hydro bill, too?”
