Weekly Words To Live By #78 . . .

Jesus is the reason for the season!

One of my Nativity scenes . . .

For a child will be born to us,
a son will be given to us;
and the government will rest on his shoulders;
And His name will be called
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, 
Eternal Father, 
Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

Jesus Is The Reason
In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.

He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we heed His call.

So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.

By Joanna Fuchs

Wishing you a Sunday filled with celebration of His birth . . .
