yes, we finally made it.
i hope that this holiday season you've had a chance to think more about our Savior, Jesus Christ.
as i've tried to think more about His birth and life i've felt more of the holiday spirit.
the spirit of love. of giving. of sharing. of family.
here is the final thought:
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great bjoy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
i love this.
we have a tradition to watch "Mr. Kruger's Christmas" every year. there is one part where Mr. Kruger is in the manger talking to the baby Jesus saying, "Thank you for all you've done for me. When i had no more hope you were there and when i was sad you were always there to talk to. You are my closest friend and i thank you for that."
let us "go even unto Bethlehem" in search of Christ the Lord.
He is always there.
let us seek Him all throughout the year and the rest of our lives.
