A Poem; then The Story: the reason for the season
     The days go by with lightning speed,
     as we cope with daily trends.
     But there's something about Christmas,
     that makes you think of friends.

     Although the love is always there,
     it gets covered by daily things.
     But Christmas makes you stop and think,
     of the joy that friendship brings.

     So we wish GOD'S love and care to You,
     and all that you hold dear.
     And may you keep this on your mind,
     throughout the coming year...

     The Christmas Story
     according to Luke

   And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of
   the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the
   city of David, which is called Bethlehem...To
   be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being
   great with child.


   And so it was, that, while they were there,
   the days were accomplished that she should be

   And she brought forth her firstborn son, and
   wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid
   him in a manger; because there was no room
   for them in the inn.

   And there were in the same country shepherds
   abiding in the field, keeping watch over
   their flock by night.

   And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon
   them, and the glory of the Lord shone round
   about them: and they were sore afraid.

   And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for,
   behold, I bring you good tidings of great
   joy, which shall be to all people.

   For unto you is born this day in the city of
   David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

   And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall
   find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,
   lying in a manger.

   And suddenly there was with the angel a
   multitude of the heavenly host praising God,
   and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and
   on earth peace, good will toward men.
