school supplies in here pencils and pens and tooth brushes. >> glimpse of the greatest gift that we have in christ. pure joy. reverend, this is what is happening across the globe. >> we ask everybody that pack as box to pray for the child who will get the box. no one -- i mean, i don't know where a person's box is going to go. god does. god will answer the prayer of one righteous personal. can you imagine 10 million people praying for 10 million children what god will do this christmas in oundhearts and lives of the world? you take the refugees in the middle east. about 70% of the refugees are children. and they have lost their homes. they have lost everything that they have known or loved has left behind. and they are afraid, they are cold, they are scared. and when you can give a gift
to them. the joy and the hope that it puts in their heart that somebody out there loves them and hasn't forgotten them. >> kids pack it up. we know as doing it as a family. kids across the globe in their hearts and sharing that message is so important. i have to think that dad had such influence on you and spirit of giving and loving. how is he doing? >> he is 96. he is doing fair. it's been a hard year for him. >> yeah. >> he is just slowing down. but his health is still pretty good. and, you know, he meets with family and friends. people come by to see him every few days. so he is staying connected. but he is just moving ayr8 little slower this year. >> aren't we all? you know, i think a lot of people can say that but not slower in heart at all. you have 10 grandchildren. >> 10 grandchildren. >> how are you celebrating christmas this year? >> we will have some of them -- i have a son in the army. he will come with his family
and spend christmas. we are looking forward to that. >> we thank him for his service and his entire family. what's your message to everyone this christmas? >> that god loves sinners and that god is willing to forgive sin. and this christmas god will heal your heart. he will forgive you and he will take the pieces of one's life and he will put it together and he will make sense out of it. there are so many people out there that feel the things that they have done, they will never be forgiven that god can't forgive them. >> no matter what they have done? no matter what i have done this week. how bad i have been? >> many people feel that god cannot forgive them. he will. you have got to come to him through faith in christ. jesus christ is the only one to take our sins. no other person in history has taken our sins except christ. when he went to the cross and he head his blood and suffered on that cross for our sins, he was buried for ourñh

jonathan morris. merry christmas. >> merry christmas to you guys. >> what are your christmas wish sns. >> first of all i want to give thanks to god for christmas. and thanks to god for you guys. one of the first things when i run into people they ask me are those people there as nice as they seem, and i say they really, really are. i say that with all my heart. >> wow. >> i mean, there are exceptions, brian. don't look at me like that. [ laughter ] >> it's not a small thing. >> it's absolutely true. the fact you would also have me on a day like this. and not tell me what to say, but to say whatever you tell me say whatever you believe. and i believe that the message is christmas for everyone. i believe we've all fallen short. that leaves a divide between us and god in our own merits we could never ever fix.
and the message of christmas is from god to us. and it goes like this. here's another chance. here's another chance. and it's not a chance that you have to get right perfectly on your own, but rather i as god am going to come in the form of a little baby. and i am going to take your place, to die for you so that you might have life. does that make sense? >> it does. and there's an innocence about children too. you can see christmas in their eyes and see the wonder and the joy that i get to see that now. and the second chance you get to see through your children's eyes. >> clayton, if you could think of any way that god could possibly come and give us that second chance, that would be acceptable to us, how about coming in the form of a baby? >> sure. >> a baby who doesn't stand in judgment over you and say if you don't do this i'm going to get you, but rather a baby who just begs to be cuddled, to be held. >> i love that. >> and what about for those people who say hey, we've lost that vision, we've lost that idea. it's about santa claus and presents? >> well, i would say it's okay that it's also about that.
those are very human things. and god came to us in a very human way. a very messy way. what could be more human than a dirty diaper or a stable? >> sure. >> and stockings are very human. and we celebrate in a human way. and i think god and the angels are up there very happy that we're very happy. >> well, we're very happy that you're part of our family. you have been for years. we love ya. >> thanks very much. it's so strange. brian used to glaze over when i would talk about spiritual things. now you're like engaged. we've come a long way. >> and you've come a long way. >> thank you. >> nice to have you here, father. >> let's get back to some music. remember her? america fell in love with jackie when she was only 10 years old and a contestant on "america's got talent". >> she's now 14 and her voice is more beautiful than ever. singing "the christmas song."

christmas i try to think of all kinds of alternatives to getting home, if my flights get canceled or weather leaves me stranded some place i just don't want to be. i've had some close calls of almost getting stranded in new york around christmas when i wanted just to be home. but while i've gotten home later than i wanted, i've always made it home for christmas. no gift under the tree is as good as that for me. and my thought of the first christmas about how joseph and mary had seen their plans to get home get all messed up as well. i'm sure they wanted to be back in nazareth for the birth of their baby, but instead they ended up stuck in bethlehem. though i'm pretty sure weather and airline schedules had nothing to do with that. now, they didn't realize it, but they were having an appointment with destiny because centuries earlier when the prophets had predicted the birth of the messiah, the city for his arrival wasn't nazareth or even jerusalem.
instead it was the sleepy little village of bethlehem. and it was an inevitable that their baby was going to be born there. i'm sure they suffered some anxious moments trying to figure out what they were going to do if they didn't get home. after all that's where their families were. that's where they would have support and comfort and be surrounded by those who could help make the birth as easy as possible. instead, all of their hopes and prayers couldn't sway the will of god who had determined long ago how and where his son would be brought into the world. there are times in our lives when things go exactly according to plan, but when god has a bigger purpose we can possibly imagine, none of our efforts no matter how well-intentioned or practical, will ever be able to change his course for us. we might be able to get the airlines to change our flight, but only god can control the actual journey. and no matter how strange or
irrational it might seem to us, there really is a purpose to the path. oh, yes, we all want to be home for christmas. and i hope you and i both make it. but being where god wants you to be, that is to be home for christmas. so here's wishing your christmas to be your best ever. >> she considers herself a singer, reality star and red neck, jessie james decker is here to share her family christmas story with you. and she's going to sing for us too. and you heard them earlier recreating a christmas classic on the harp. the sons of serendip have one more surprise for us when we come back. when i crave a smoke that's all i crave.

you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. ask your doctor about tamiflu and attack the flu virus at its source. live from america's news headquarters, i'm laura ngle. planes, trains and automobiles, the race is on as millions of last-minute holiday travelers dash to try to make it home in time for christmas dinner. some though won't make it. heavy snowfall in the midwest and a massive rainstorm in the nice are making for treacherous driving. if you're traveling by air, be advised to call your airline to
