Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn’t come from a store. – Dr. Seuss
There are about eight or nine days left before Christmas. That means some people (like me) have about eight days before I need to shop!
I like to read (or listen) to the Bible and I also like to read or listen to the Christmas story. Over at the blog, YouVersion, they have several “Christmas Plans” that you might find interesting.
They range in length from just a few days to a few weeks. Check them out HERE.
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, 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, goodwill toward men!” – Luke 2:8-14 NKJV
