Merry Christmas!

Nothing long. I just wanted to wish everything the most holy and wonderful of Christmas' as we celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, who came to save mankind from the sin that binds us. It is truly the most glorious thing, to think of how God, the Supreme Creator of the universe, chose to come to earth Himself in the form of a humble child so He could experience all of our frailty, our weakness, our temptations - all in order to forgive us our sin and then gather us up in His everlasting, loving embrace. Merry Christmas to you and God bless you and yours. :-)
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this. - Isaiah 9:6,7

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. - St. Matthew 1:23
