"And the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you; you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger.' And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitide of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.'" Luke 2:10-14
I am thankful this week for this season of Christmas. First and foremost, a time to celebrate the birth of our Saviour. A time to celebrate the precious gift of eternal life that He gave to us. A gift given of great sacrifice.
After that, I am thankful for all of the many things that come secondary to Jesus' birth. I am thankful for....
