For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given . . . . and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and lineage of David). To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:4-7
Here we are again! Christmas 2016. Mercy – the days are often long but the years go fast. . . .
My best wishes to all of you for a Happy and Blessed Christmas, New Year and Holiday Season!!
