I’ve been tackling my to do list today, and getting ready to go shopping with my son so he can spend his Christmas money from G’ma and G’pa and I can get some white elephant gifts for a party we are going to tomorrow. I’ve also been listening to Christmas music, including the soundtrack from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
I’ve been thinking about what I would post today (still in that whole Postaday thing, you know). What could I say about Christmas that would be a blessing to those who read my blog? How could I explain what Christmas is all about? I realized that Linus, quoting Luke, said it about as well as anyone can. So I decided to share my favorite scene from the best Christmas special ever made.
8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luke 2 (KJV).
