Day 214 – For I Bring You Good News That Will Cause Great Joy

For I Bring You Good News That Will Cause Great Joy

Day 214

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

  “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

  When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

  So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.  When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,  and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Luke 2:8-20

Today, I am taking a moment to just breathe before the hectic weekend and so I am giving you a photo taken last night.  My tomorrow will start very early with a good deal of driving, searching, comparing, hunting and hopefully saving, driving some more, paying some bills, hoping to be home by 3 or 4 then off to Riverside by 6, helping out, getting candy canes ready, waiting for crowds, enjoying music, enjoying smiles, enjoying life, then driving, then good nights, then wrapping, wrapping, wrapping, good night Cyndi, good morning Cyndi, and repeat the day but add plenty of well loved family.

But for now, I am going to breathe.

    • It went off like clockwork – and really what doesn’t go off like clockwork, since time doesn’t stop? I was up until 3:00 am wrapping some of the loot I had bought and picky me couldn’t stop at just gift wrap and a bow….
