How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures . . . . These all look to  you to give them their food at the proper time.  When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand they are satisfied with good things.  Psalm 104:24 & 27-28

                                                                                                  

   But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”  Luke 2:10

    Mom, thanks for the crumbs today. I was just reading the paper and I have read several letters to the editor over the last few days, even weeks. The battle going back and forth between those that are mad and upset at others for trying to “take Christ out of Christmas” and those that don’t believe that Christ was ever a part of the pagan Christmas now celebrated and moreover, that it is all a myth anyway. It is sad to see so many missing the truth and to be reminded of the peace of Christmas that comes from Christ and His power and greatness. He will never be removed from Christmas regardless of what happens in the world for He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace with enduring compassion who provides and protects.
