“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 2017 comes to a close, it is a time to remember family and friends and those who have special meaning in our lives. While I’m still writing and posting photos at LynnRMitchell.com, my new responsibilities as editor-in-chief at Bearing Drift have kept me very busy. The entire past year was busy.
Here’s to a great 2018 and many more years observing, writing, and taking pictures of politics and more. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thanks for the lovely Christmas! I really had a good time and am so thankful Katy & Colin and Matt & Valerie could be with us at Lori, Jon and Emily’s house. It was a wonderful Christmas day with my family! I love and appreciate all of the help you and Bill have given Cal and me, as well as the thoughtful gifts from you two and the “kiddieboos” and their spouses. What a fine family ours is!!!!!
I loved your post about Stacy again this year and wish that one day before long he hears about it and contacts you. It would be nice to know what happened to him. Hopefully, one day……..
