Merry Christmas!

Snuck online for a few minutes before I have to go back downstairs to finish up the cooking (we’ve already set the fire alarm smoke detector off this morning – YAY!). Merry Christmas, my dear readers – and to your families as well. And a special Merry Christmas to our men and women serving overseas, who can’t be with their families on Christmas Day. May God bless you and keep you safe so you can come home for the next Christmas.

Here’s hoping and praying for many blessings in the new year for everyone.

From today’s Purpose Driven Life Daily Devo:

From the Gospel of Luke we see the birth announcement of Jesus –

Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified.

The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”

At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises:

Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.

Luke 2:9-14 (MSG)

And, of course, my favorite explanation of what Christmas is all about:
