Before I leave home for our Christmas get-away I want to take a moment and wish you all a lovely holiday together. At our house we like to think of this time of the year as a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
It is a grand time to draw together,
To remember and give thanks for the grace
that has been shown to each of us.
"O Holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and enter in;
Be born in us today.
We hear the heavenly angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Immanuel."
