“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 people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, 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 goodwill towards men.” Luke 2:8-20
The true meaning of Christmas … a time for the Christian world to pause and celebrate the birth of the son of God.
As 2016 comes to a close, I are thankful for a successful year and especially for my readers who contribute and share the posts published at LynnRMitchell.com.
It is a time to remember those who have special meaning in our lives. I am writing full-time and photo editor for BearingDrift.com, and still writing and posting pictures at LynnRMitchell.com. The past year was busy.
February marked 10 years since I began writing in Virginia’s conservative blogosphere. January marks one year since I returned to Bearing Drift and that group of excellent political writers, strategists, and number crunchers.
Here’s to a great 2017 and another 10 years observing, writing, and taking pictures of politics and more. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
