THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ST. LUKE
AND THE ANGEL SAID UNTO THEM, FEAR NOT, BEHOLD, I BRING YOU GOOD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY, WHICH SHALL BE FOR ALL PEOPLE.
FOR UNTO YOU IS BORN THIS DAY IN THE CITY OF DAVID, A SAVIOUR, WHICH IS CHRIST THE LORD.
AND THIS SHALL BE THE SIGN UNTO U; YE SHALL FIND THE BABE WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES, LYING IN A MANGER.
AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS WITH THE ANGEL A MULTITUDE OF HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD AND SAYING,
GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH, PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.
AND IT CAME TO PASS, AS THE ANGELS WERE GONE AWAY FROM THEM INTO HEAVEN, THE SHEPHERDS, SAID ONE TO ANOTHER. LET US NOW GO EVEN UNTO BETHLEHEM, AND SEE THIS THING WHICH IS COME TO PASS, WHICH THE LORD HATH MADE KNOWN UNTO US.
AND THEY CAME WITH HASTE, AND FOUND MARY AND JOSEPH AND THE BABE LYING IN THE MANGER.
The Christmas spirit is love.
Love changes everything. And love is what changes the world.
God's love that shines through us...all because of a tiny baby boy.
Love is the Christmas Spirit.
Jesus' love inspired me to open my little pie shop and love all the people I can through a loving piece of pie.
Let us all remember the Christmas Spirit that lives in every human heart that walks this
Thus, do everything we can to bring it out in each other.
For the Christmas spirit is truly and simply, LOVE.
IF AS HEROD, WE FILL OUR LIVES WITH THINGS, AND AGAIN WITH THINGS;
IF WE CONSIDER OURSELVES SO UNIMPORTANT THAT WE MUST FILL EVERY
MOMENT OF OUR LIVES WITH ACTION, WHEN WILL WE HAVE TIME TO MAKE THE
LONG, SLOW JOURNEY ACROSS THE DESERT AS DID THE MAGI?
OR SIT AND WATCH THE STARS AS DID THE SHEPHERDS?
OR BROOD OVER THE COMING OF THE CHILD AS DID MARY?
FOR EACH OF US, THERE IS A DESERT TO TRAVEL.
A STAR TO DISCOVER
AND A BEING WITHIN OURSELVES TO BRING TO LIFE. -- AUTHOR UNKNOWN
Let the Christmas spirit fill your lives with love, and purpose to follow your very own star, to be the very best you.
Eat pie, and God Bless Us Everyone! -- xoxolinda
