The whole article about the Provo Tabernacle being destroyed by fire is found in Meridian Magazine, but this is a small miracle worth passing on, especially poignant this time of year.

For most viewing the interior it was a total loss…and then yesterday a fireman removed one of the many pieces of art work in the building…it is the building’s only survivor…a picture of Jesus Christ. The fire had seared the picture all around the frame and most of the picture…except the figure of our Lord and redeemer….he somehow survived.
Isn’t that really the message of our Christmas season? When we are downtrodden, heartbroken, sick, poor, miserable…when all seems lost…that little child of Bethlehem that came into the world over 2,000 years ago is still with us. His message, mission and life are eternal and when the flames of death attack us he survives and saves not only himself, but all of mankind.
Merry Christmas to all of you. The best is yet to come
