Merry Christmas

“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 Christ the Lord.” Luke 2: 10 & 11

As the paper is gathered and the smiles of children and adults alike beam in the lights of the Christmas tree let us all remember the true reason we’re celebrating this day. It is the day we remember, celebrate and give thanks that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ left his home in Heaven to be born of a virgin in a poor family, to live, love, grow and teach until sacrificing his own life on the cross to exchange his sinless existence for ours so that by excepting his free gift of Salvation we may come to Him and follow to our home in Heaven.

So Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!
