It’s Christmas Day! I’ve never posted actually on this day of days, so I thought I would break with tradition. I managed to start and finish knitting one last minute, unplanned Christmas gift in time for last night to be given to the recipient. I only managed two knit Christmas gifts this year, and that’s okay. I’m already planning next year’s Christmas gifts, though.
The reason why I’m posting today, however, is because I wanted to share this with you:
“And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and 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 among those with whom he is pleased!'” (Luke 2:8-14)
I thank God for the many blessings He has given me this year: my sister’s health, my family reuniting, new life on the way, a new church home and new friends, graduation (finally), and lots of time to knit and crochet for the ones I love.
May God bless you and your family this Christmas! He is the reason we celebrate!
