Christmas Day


It's common knowledge that today is the day we celebrate the birth of one Jesus Christ.

His birth was foretold in general for over a thousand years.

He was promised to Adam and Eve at the start of the troubles.

Moses knew of Him. David spoke of Him and was promised Him as a descendant to take his throne.

Daniel, in of the of the most astonishing prophecies of all told the year he would be born.

Then, His mother had a visit from an angel to announce her conception, as did His step-dad.

And so, right on time, He arrived.

He stepped down from His throne in heaven and was born in this crap-filled hell-hole and lived among us, as one of us for one purpose. To die for us. To redeem us. To purchase us for Himself.

"For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross.

He sees in us more than we see in ourselves.

Take Him at His Word. Embrace Him. Trust Him. 

Honor him not with a day of the year, but all the days of your life.

You will live to never regret it.


  1. I hope you had a wonderful day. Merry Christmas.

  2. One of our family traditions is to watch at least three versions of "A Christmas Carol". (The Disney animated version is nothing short of amazing.) In each of them Scrooge promises to "keep Christmas in his heart" at all times. It's easy to say. When others are treating you like jerks, it ain't so easy.
    But wouldn't the world be perfect if we'd all just try?
    Merry Christmas Ed.

    1. I am so preferential to the Alastair Sim version, having watched almost all of them, I have never seen A Disney version other than A Mickey Christmas Carol. Now I'm remembering that there was a Jim Carrey version. Is that it?

      And you caught the reference to te admonition of the Ghost of Christmas Present, which only occurred to me after I wrote it.

      Thank you for being my friend and stopping by.

  3. Ed that is so beautiful and so very true. God bless you every day of the year and may all your Christmas's be filled with His joy, peace, and love.

    1. A belated thank you, Elizabeth.
      And to you and yours.

  4. Despite the American misconception that Christmas only lasts a day, I wish you a Merry Christmas, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Joyeux Noël (all of which end on 6 January), Feliz Navidad, and Cчастливого Рождества (which begins on 7 January).
