It's here, finally it's Christmas. Remember when you were a little kid you didn't think Christmas would ever come.
There was so much to do leading up to the big day then all of a sudden it's Christmas Eve. All the shopping is done and the gifts are wrapped. Cards have been sent and received. There will be those waiting at home for family and friends traveling for miles to get there. Little kids are getting so excited because they know Santa will make his rounds tonight. The tree is up and the lights make a soft peaceful glow that makes everything look so pretty. It's Christmas eve and something happens as the day wears on, things seemed to slow down. Take some time this evening to appreciate the quite peaceful time of Christmas and remember the reason for the Season.
(2:8-14) "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 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 peace, good will toward men."
I wish you all the peace of the season now and all through the coming year. Merry Christmas Everyone.
