Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
~ Luke 2:8-14 NKJV
I am beyond excited to be spending Christmas with my children and granddaughter this year. It’s been a year of transition and change for all of us; I feel so blessed to have this time together as we celebrate and look forward.
Wishing you and yours a blessed and wonderful Christmas.
Merry Christmas, all!
Linda. I feel your joy in celebrating with all your family this year. Retirement is working very well for you! May your joys continue in the New Year. Merry Christmas!
