It's easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas, what with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  So take some time and remember what it's all really about.


Luke 2:8-16
King James Version (KJV)

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.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.



Isaiah 9:6
King James Version (KJV)

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given...and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I wish joy to you and your kin as you celebrate the Light of the World. May the miracle of His birth light your way through the coming year.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
And remember, without Christ, you're just celebrating December 25th.

So true.

Oh...well...it's family time? Makes it worth it, yes? :)
Just curious, what were you watching?

Movies that everybody else in the world except me likes. Old ones like Holiday Inn, A White Christmas, then newer ones like Elf, A Christmas Carol (Muppet style), A Christmas Story, etc. And we watched a nativity story movie on Christmas Eve. It's ridiculous, but nobody seems to acknowledge the fact that I just... hate movies except for a few.
