Christmas time is near.......

A few months ago we decided to have lunch after church on our third Sunday service. I went first, Redea took November and today Sandy had the dinner for December. January will be Tonya's turn.

Last night the preaching went to me (others owned up to it going to them today too, I actually stayed quiet though it did go to me. I am trying to get back to where I need to be, it is slow. I am making excuses. That got me today too.....) Today's service was wonderful. The dinner after went very well too. It has been an awesome day.

With all the excitement of the upcoming celebrations, let us not forget the meaning of the day.

Luke 2: 6-14

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7And 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 the inn.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

I work tomorrow, so this is all for tonight.

I love all y'all!
