I figured since the world was going to end tomorrow, I better get my post up. Christmas has been pretty stress-free this year. All my shopping is done, presents are wrapped and under the tree. The pumpkins are off the front porch. I have baked most of the cookies (still have to do oatmeal raisin cookies for the hubby). Tomorrow is the last day of work until Jan. 2. There is nothing left to do but enjoy my home, the Christmas tree, some family time and some relaxing.
I hope you take time to spend with your loved ones and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. That this is the time of year we celebrate our Savior's birth. For without Him we are nothing. Sometimes I find it hard to wrap my brain around such love. But I am so thankful that He did love us more than I can imagine.
My favorite Christmas Story:
Luke 2: 7-21
she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling
clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 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.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
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
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things
that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
