Have yourself A Merry Christmas!

Well, let me explain that I am in one of the Biggest Christmas moods ever! Mainly, because it's snowing GINORMOUS snowflakes outside,Christmas music is playing, and the delicious smell of baking cookies is wafting out from the oven! But I am also in one of the biggest Christmas moods because I LOVE this time of year and I just want to share with you one of my favorite Christmas stories: The Birth of Jesus!
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city ofNazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her first born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in that 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 heavenly host praising God, and saying, GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOODWILL TOWARD MEN!" (Luke 2: 1-14 KJV)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++So with all that said I want to wish you all the MERRIEST Christmas you have ever had!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
