Linus said it best...



On this Christmas Eve, I defer to the words of someone much wiser and far kinder than I:

"And there were in the same country shepherds, abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them! And they were sore afraid ... And the angel said unto them, "Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all my people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ, the Lord."

"And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 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, and good will toward men."

"That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown." - Linus Van Pelt

A friend of mine at work and I were discussing this a couple of weeks ago. There's no better reading of this scripture than Linus. I even got him the Hallmark card that repeats the ENTIRE thing when you open it. It was a big hit at his house. I hope you had a great Christmas my friend. It was great seeing you when you were in town. PS-Email me your new address...
