Agelbert NOTE: Have you ever heard your brother and/or your sister say that there are "too many" (heirs) when discussing your inheritance from your deceased parents? I have. It was depressing to listen to this (not very) veiled threat from someone who claimed to be a Christian. It is my sincere hope that before she died she repented of this grievous sin. Also, I hope and pray that, before his death, the brother she quoted, who once saved my life from drowning (I was able to return the favor years later), repents of, as the quote from "A Christmas Carol" states, the unbridled arrogance of an "Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust."

Though I was subsequently defrauded of my inhertance by them and my 4 other siblings, I forgive them and ask God, right here, and right NOW, to forgive those still alive (two have died), if they repent, and NOT require them to make monetary restitution to me as a condition of His forgiveness. May God have Mercy on all of us.
Merry Christmas! ☝🏻🙏🏼 


SNIPPETS:

Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir."

"Are there no prisons?"

"Plenty of prisons..."

"And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?"

"Both very busy, sir..."
"Those who are badly off must go there."
"Many can't go there; and many would rather die."

"If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population." ... ...


"Spirit 🕊️," said Scrooge, with an interest he had never felt before, "tell me if Tiny Tim will live."

"I see a vacant seat," replied the Ghost 🕊️, "in the poor chimney corner, and a crutch without an owner, carefully preserved. If these shadows remain unaltered by the Future, the child will die."

"No, no," said Scrooge. "Oh no, kind Spirit 🕊️! say he will be spared."

"If these shadows remain unaltered by the Future, none other of my race," returned the Ghost 🕊️, "will find him here. What then? If he be like to die, he had better do it, and decrease the surplus population."

Scrooge hung his head to hear his own words quoted by the Spirit, and was overcome with penitence and grief.

"Man," said the Ghost 🕊️, "if man you be in heart, not adamant, forbear that wicked cant until you have discovered What the surplus is, and Where it is. Will you decide what men shall live, what men shall die? It may be, that in the sight of Heaven, you are more worthless and less fit to live than millions like this poor man's child.

Oh God! to hear the Insect on the leaf pronouncing on the too much life among his hungry brothers in the dust."
