Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas!!!  

And suddenly there was with
the angel a multitude of the 
heavenly host praising God
and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill
towards men!"
-Luke 2:13-14 NKJV

I want to share with you part of my devotion on You Version...Daily Reading...Prepare Your Heart For Christmas. (link)

I guess you aren’t surprised at the coming birthday celebrations this December 25--you’ve had all year to prepare. But what you may not have expected is the satisfaction that comes from worshiping Jesus as though this were your first Christmas. There before you, wrapped in his little strips of cloth, is the ultimate paradox: God and man, Co-Creator and yet begotten, helper and helpless, frail and mighty, brand-new and ancient. There before you lies your salvation--the One who would put himself, his body, between you and death. How can you not love him?
“At the name of Jesus 
every knee should bow, 
in heaven and on earth 
and under the earth” 
-Philippians 2:10

Such great hope, promise...Now that's Christmas.  It's a promise fulfilled!!! This baby holds the future of me, my children, my grandchildren...He is the one who will bridge the gap between God and man...All wrapped up in cloth, lying in a manger, embodied in a baby...Pure perfection, pure Love, Joy, Peace, For the Hope of the World.  

I pray you all have a wonderful Christmas.
