It’s Quiet Now……
The house is quite with the grandkids and TF all snuggled in their beds. Jen, Justin and William are out for a quite night at a local bar…….not exactly what I was expecting but it will have to do……The two Christmas trees are all aglow and a bell choir is playing on TV. The stockings are now hung at the foot of the stairs and I am trying to just get a quite moment before I fall off into lala land.
I wonder what it was like all those years ago when Mary and Joseph where off in a strange land and about to have a baby any minute. They were sent to a stable, the only place available in town at the moment. The famous “star” shown over head. Those familiar with the words of the scriptures knew that something grand was about to happen, the savior of the world was about to be born. Shepard’s noticed the star as they watched their flocks by night, it must have been an awesome sight. Wise men and three kings followed the star till they found the Christ child, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. They brought gifts to the new born king. As we open our gifts this Christmas morning, lets remember what we are celebrating and enjoy the day with our families.
Merry Christmas to one and all, and to all a good night!
