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.
but it's still annoying when your father forces you to watch Christmas movies all Christmas week when he knows you hate movies T~T

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.

Oh. Well...I don't really like most of these new Christmas movies either....Elf, ugh. Some of the older ones are pretty good. I like the Santa Clause movies, especially the 2nd one. And the new Grinch. :XD: Btw, I've just recently been able to see Howl's Moving Castle...Love it!

Yay! Someone else who also doesn't like Elf! :D
I haven't really watched either of those, but they sound good?
Howl's Moving Castle is awesome, isn't it?

Yeah...I kinda thought it was a little dumb...:XD:

The Santa Clause's are great! The first is good, the second is my favorite, the third...pretty good also.:)
Howl's Moving Castle IS awesome! (Can't decide if I like the blond or the black hair better though. :XD:)

Hmm, maybe I'll find them somewhere eventually..
I personally like black hair better. Remember when Sophie is in Howl's memories when he saves Calcifer? I like to think all that woman-wooing was because he was searching for her so she could break his curse. Got to love time paradoxes!

Time paradoxes...oi. Make your brain hurt. But I like that idea! :aww:
Yeah, I think I like the black hair better too.^_^

This is an absolutely wonderful journal entry. Your right as rain, Jesus is the reason for the season. God gave us the greatest gift with Christ's birth. Thank you for reminding us what we are celebrating on this day.:hug: May God richly bless you during this season of joy.
