And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people.
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christa the Lord.
This will be a sign to you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.
”Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
May Peace, Joy, and Love be with you this Christmas, whether you celebrate alone or with loved ones. The Reason for the Season is Jesus, not Santa & his elves, not gifts to each other, and not the holiday meal & goodies galore. May each of us stop for a moment and reflect on His Gift to us, more precious than gold or anything this world has to offer.
Have a Blessed Christmas Everyone!
