A Christmas thinking of God's blessings

Luke 2:9, 10 -  And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people"

I plan to spend this Christmas remembering and giving thanks for the blessings and joy God has given in Christmas past. Recalling the smiles as a child and my children shared with gifts but mostly in being with each other.

Tender heartedly, thinking of the wonderful times spent with my Nana as a child at Christmas. Each day always seemed filled with affection and love of the birth of our Lord around her. Also, one of our children years ago, sanding and singing in a school Christmas choir. Tears welling and heart full of pleasure and happiness. Listening as young hearts, mouths, and faces praised our Lord God on high.

What a blessing Christ was sent to earth  as my Savior. Noel, in the original Latin meaning birth or birthday. Praise God for the first birthday of Christ our Lord. God and love incarnate, born a child for us and sent as our redeemer.

May our time celebrating the birth of our Lord be a time of peace of heart this coming year never felt before … In Jesus Name. Amen.  Happy birthday Jesus!

Luke 2:14 - “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

The First Noel
