Merry Christmas [scroll to see more]

I wish you a wonderful Christmas.

THE TREE

A tree--a simple pine--

Is full of glow and shine,

All wrapped in Christmas lights

That speak of other sights:

The star of Bethlehem

And angels--crowds of them

With news of joy and peace,

Of hope and full release

Through babe in cattle stall

Who's come to save us all

Who trust in his great Name

(We'll never be the same).

The tree's a simple pine,

But whispers things divine.

And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. --Luke 2:9, ESV
