Merry Christmas!!

 Today is Christmas Eve. We will be attending a special church service of worship and prayer. But I have a card to share from last year. I don't know who made this stamp as I took it off its wood block many years ago and I cannot find it on a search.

I know many people who have no idea what tomorrow represents or even cares. But to me Christmas is all about Christ and this day got its name from Him.  Even holiday is, to me, holy day.  There is much more about this occasion but I will not go into more.

I will share the Word of God concerning the birth of Jesus Christ. This is Luke 2:8 - 20

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.  Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger."

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

    "Glory to God in the highest,

    And on earth peach, goodwill toward men!"

So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, "Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, with the Lord has made known to us." And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But May kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

May you know the reason for this season and may He bless you!
