It was a clear night. Star upon star shining in the night sky. But one star shone more bright than all of them. A star unlike any other. It was this star under which the shepherds were tending their sheep.
“And behold an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'” Luke 2, 9-11 NKJV
As we sit around the tree Christmas morning drinking coffee and unwrapping presents, always keep in mind the true meaning of Christmas. We are celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. A child born of a virgin who was destined to be the perfect gift for all mankind. On this Christmas day, be sure this is the one gift that you have no fear of unwrapping. Once you do, the true meaning of Christmas will be in your heart each and every day of the year.
I want to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
