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!!!

Humbling. So many people in the world today seek to elevate themselves to the highest place. The Most High came and was laid in a manger. If that can’t penetrate a hardened heart..what can? This never fails to bring tears to my eyes. What an AWESOME God. Merry Christmas!

Brad's Gramma,

Great video. I get so angry about what is happening around the world. The world is a mad house. That being texted , I'm sure the "kleenex" company will bill from watching this video half dozen times. Take care, G-d bless. For Jew or Gentile

and even the Muslims....

All the best.

A very Merry Christmas to each of you....thank you for visiting this thread that glock rocks my anonymous friend sent me the link for.

And the prodding by Jim some guy who encouraged that this be put up as a thread....you two ROCK!

Thank you Jesus, for being born...thank you for loving us so much that you came in the form of a baby, born in a lowly stable...to then die on the cross for our sins.

I pray that each of you enjoy this evening and tomorrow with your family and friends. God bless each of you!!!

Happy Birthday, Jesus!!

Here's a lovely song by Josh Groban that reminds me a lot of FR, and to be thankful for all that God has blessed me with! :*) (Click on the link to go to youtube to hear the song itself.)

THANKFUL (lyrics)

Somedays, we forget to look around us,
Somedays, we can't see the joy that surrounds us,
So caught up inside ourselves,
We take when we should give.

So for tonight we pray for,
What we know can be,
And on this day we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for.

Look beyond ourselves,
There's so much sorrow,
It's way too late to say,
I'll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth,
It's so long overdue,

So for tonight we pray for,
What we know can be,
And everyday, we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for.

Even with our differences,
There is a place we're all connected,
Each of us can find each other's light


So for tonight, we pray for
What we know can be,
And on this day, we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
And even though this world needs so much more
There's so much to be thankful for.

Gee THAT sounds like *cough* fun....

Some kid who lives here, can't seem to recall the name...(this is NON-CHRISTMAS-RELATED)....had me do a YouTube search last night for "crazy dominoes".

Said kid and I were up WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too late watching, laughing, ooooohing and aaaaaahing over some of the ELABORATE domino set-ups people have done.

Back to not being here...

Well now, that sounds likes fun.
