our good father

the table

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:6-11 NIV

    Yes! God is so good!!! I love it that Jesus, the Bread of Life, was born in a manger where animals feed, in a city whose name means "house of bread". We are extra blessed to have all three of the kids' living grandparents with us this year in Australia for Christmas. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

    I really enjoyed reading the nativity story with my kids tonight – interspersed with Christmas carols.
