Merry Christmas

And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.”
  — Luke 2:16-20 (ESV)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of my family and friends.  

Today, while we're focusing on gifts, money, travel and countless other seemingly important things, let's remember.  Christmas is the celebration of the birth of a baby.  This baby grew to teach us much about the world and how to live in it, yet his greatest gift was the promise of an eternal life with him.  God bless you and your family this holiday!
