I’m quite certain Dickens knew a few Scrooges in his day, certainly enough to give some real-life inspiration to his writing. But how about this guy, alleged Craigslist killer?

I had to ask myself, how do you even make that face with your mouth? I worked on it for a minute as I looked at his picture (FoxNews.com): couldn’t even come close (and caused myself some pain).

It must have taken years to form that scowl. What a face!

And then these national headlines listed at the top of Newzjunky.com this morning:


My conclusion? Some people out there need a visitation from a Ghost. A Holy one.

This is your friendly reminder that, if you’re a Christian, the Holy Spirit resides in you. Not only should we be praying for the salvation and welfare of Scrooges in our society – that they would be haunted by heaven – but we must recognize we’re often Scrooge’s first encounter with the Holy Ghost.

Go haunt someone today. The Ghost of Christmas Present may just want to heal someone’s past to provide them a better future with your present. ch:

I loved this post! You’re so right! We all need to do a little haunting once in a while. 😉 (I couldn’t do the face either)

    Glad I wasn’t the only one that tried to make it.
