Christmas

Many things make Christmas for me....
A Charlie Brown Christmas is a classic, of course, with Linus' beautiful telling of the meaning of the day.



A Nativity Story -- a new classic for us -- with the phenomenal story of the conception and birth of the Savior and the additional insights into the very human, frail and willing lives of Mary and Joseph.



And while Christmas is not THE story -- THE story covers the remainder of Jesus' subsequent life, death, and resurrection -- Christmas is the beginning, the foundation for all that was and is to come.

How blessed we are to know Him!
How blessed we are to know each other and be joined together as family by the Love that was birthed that day!

Glory to God in the Highest, and peace, goodwill to all.

May God richly bless you this Christmas!!
