Happy Birthday Jesus!!

Luke 2:7-14

"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. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 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, good will toward men."

Let us all remember the "Reason for the Season." It is the most wonderful gift of all...our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was sent here as a beautiful baby....sent to save the world! What an amazing gift. We owe our lives to Him. As you spend time with your family and friends this Christmas season, remember the reason we are celebrating. Words cannot express how much He means to me and my family. He is our Father, Protector, Healer, Forgiver, Redeemer, and so much more. We have life because of Him. Let's give Him our and always!

Have a most wonderful Merry Christmas!!
