Merry Christmas!

Today we remember 2000 years past In a manger, a child, in the light the star cast, King of all Kings, so humbly born Fulfilling the promise made by the Lord. Savior, Messiah, Redeemer, the Christ, In the hay, and the straw, and the filth and the grime. In a stable with animals all gathered around Christ Jesus was born in this Bethleham town. Rejoice all ye people, sing strong and sing loud! 'Till the streets, roads and rooftops ring with the sound. Joy to the world, the Lord is come! And blessings this Christmas to everyone.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful day of spending time with your families and remembering our Savior's birth!
