As she was getting dressed for the da); she said the Lord spoke to her in the show- VICKI er telling her to make Jesus the topper and put Christ back in Christmas. She told her husband, Ted; they didn't expand on it at the time and she continued her job as an operating room nurse. But every once in a while God would con- vict her of it. Angle said several years went by and one day she mentioned this to her boss at the time - Dr. Guy Foul- kes - who told her about a friend with connections on how to have such an item produced. She said basically four calls was all it took. Doors were being opened to a factory in China that could mass produce. She sent pictures back and forth and they finally got it right after many changes. Angle said she tried to make the topper so that it would light up and could never get that just right. She said she woke up one morning and God said "I am the Light;" so she dropped the light- ing detail on the topper. Angle said she went by her heart from then on and did what the Lord led her to do. After getting together a rough design from that year's angel, Angle SMITH set out to make the Lord's mission a reali Through God's infinite wisdom and grace, in a short period of time a patent was granted and an order was placed for the mold. At the Georgigs Inventors As- sociation they were able to get started with trademark and copy rights and were told there was nothing else like this on the market. The Jesus topper comes with different colored silk sashes, and the sash crosses Jesus' body on the topper from left to right. Angle explained she got this from the movie "Heaven is For Real" where the little boy in this movie saw Jesus. She also said that the coloring of Jesus' skin was changed sev- eral times, but she believes it is the true coloring of Jesus skin. Angle said the tree topper is the last item you place on your tree and the first thing you take down. It is always wrapped with special care and gives a special glow from its place on top of the tree. The Christmas tree does not feel the same with- out something on top. What, or rather who, is the true meaning of Christmas? Is it Santa? Perhaps it's the special feeling of families coming together to cel- ebrate. Maybe it's the way the lights twinkle and the holiday cheer that buzzes in the air. You might think all these things would be the true meaning of Christmas, but it's really a baby hem in a manger that came to save the world from our sins. JESUS CHRIST, the baby born in a manger, is the true meaning of Christmas. By purchasing the Season's Reason Christmas Tree top- per we are putting CHRIST back in Christmas, one tree at a time. Angle said Season's Rea- son will give a portion ofaU sales to addiction centers and veterans.
