Joyous Season

 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
 that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16
Plainfield VT - Church in winter
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 just 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.

Wishing you a Sunday filled with rejoicing . . .

It's sad that Christmas is so commercial and the meaning is lost for so many. Thank you for keeping the focus on Christ Our Lord.
