Luk 2:10 - 14 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. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"

I have heard it say that no single event has ever changed the course of human history quite like the birth of Jesus Christ.  He came to give us all not only eternal life, but to be our ever present source of comfort, love, and peace while we live our lives here on this earth.  There has never been a more perfect gift.  He came as a simple baby, born in a stable, without much materially to His name.  But His life here on this earth, and more importantly, His ultimate death on the cross, holds the power and miracle to change a human life forever.  I can never express enough my gratitude for this gift to all mankind. 

I just want to take this opportunity to wish everyone of my new friends a very Merry Christmas and a New Year full of God's abundant love and blessings.  You have all added so much to my life this last year I don't think any of you could imagine.  It was a hard year for me as I adjusted to my daughter moving away and my "nest" finally be empty.  But God is faithful and good and He has filled my life with new opportunities and friendships.  I look forward to this new year and hope to get to know some of you even better, and maybe meet some of you face to face.  May you all enjoy your families and friends in these next few days and remember Him from Whom all these blessings flow.  Happy birthday Jesus!
