Merry Christmas!

  "The people who walked in darkness
   Have seen a great light;
   Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
   Upon them a light has shined.
You have multiplied the nation 
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You 
According to the joy of harvest, 
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 

For You have broken the yoke of his burden 
And the staff of his shoulder...
For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle, 
And garments rolled in blood, 
Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.
For unto us a Child is born, 
Unto us a Son is given; 
And the government will be upon His shoulder. 
And His name will be called 

Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,     
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

Of the increase of His government and peace 
There will be no end,
 Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
 To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
 From that time forward, even forever.
 The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
Isaiah 9:2-6

Praying that today we will all stop for a moment among the gifts, the food, the family and fun, to remember that this is the day a tiny baby came into the world not to judge it, but to save it.
God Bless You All, 
And Merry Christmas!
