~ The Reason for the Season! ~

Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus
 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.

2
(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)

3 And everyone went to his own town to register.

 4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.

5
He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

6
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,

7
and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


Merry CHRISTmas!!!

Amen! And a Merry Christmas to all..

I remember a few years back when “THEY” started the XMAS thing and we were told that it was to ‘shorten’ the word and the ‘rallying cry’ was “Don’t take Christ out of Christmas”.
Even so that was better than ignoring it completely as “THEY” seem bent on doing.

Again

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Thank you for the song, and the ping, Star.

That is so beautiful. Thanks. I sent it to my family: Catholic, Mormon, Episcopal, Buddhist and Shinto. I'm certain they'll all appreciate it.

Merry Christmas STARWISE.

For you...

Well, yes, if you click on the picture of the Virgin, you will be rewarded.

Leg of lamb, smoked salmon and sirloin roast, perhaps some quail and game hen...

Okra, spinach, artichoke and greens...

pickles, olives, apples, pears and oranges...

mince, strawberry and coconut pies...

chocolate, coffee and brandy...

I hope we can find something to soothe your weary travel.

You and gramps and your dawgs are welcome anytime.

I had a HOMEMADE GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH, and not one, but TWO fried eggs. Over easy. Heavy on the pepper.
