Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everybody.........

sit back and think about how merry we all should be.

I have a wonderful husband and children...
Friends who are traveling to pick up long-awaited children and add them to their family
Friends who are in process of adding children to their families
Family who are gathering together who are all healthy
A home that stands against the Oklahoma winds
Friends gathering together with new little ones in their families
A great church to worship our God
An extended family who always thinks of us no matter where we are in the world
Friends who I may not have seen in a while but think of enough of me to send me a card at Christmas
Today I don't have the Alaska snow, but I have overcast skies :)
My doggy gets to lay by the fire
This list could go on and on

We all have the greatest gift of all......Jesus Christ.

This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”(which means “God with us”).

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Merry Christmas!
