Merry Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all my blog family - I hope you have a wonderful day - celebrating the birth of Jesus with your family or friends.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS! Thank you for coming into our lives. We our so grateful for you and for the joy you bring to us, for the forgiveness you give to us, and for the love you give to us. Truly we don't really always deserve it - so thank you for your grace. And may we go out and love one another as you taught us.

Daughter, hubs, chatty, gs, FIL of DIL, DIL, GS, son.

He became a man that we might become children of God.

In infancy he troubled a king.

In boyhood he puzzled the teachers.

In manhood he ruled the course of nature.

He walked upon the billows, hushed the sea to sleep, and healed the multitudes without medicine.

He never wrote a book, yet the libraries of the world are filled with volumes that have been written about him.

He never penned a musical note, yet he is the theme of more songs than any other subject.

Great men have come and gone, yet he lives on.

Herod could not kill him.

Satan could not seduce him.

All others have failed in some way, but not Jesus!

This perfect one is altogether lovely.

He is matchless in his person and work.

He is our Savior.
