Merry Christmas!

O, little town of Bethlehem, 
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The  everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight. - Words- Philip Brooks, 1868,  Music- Lewis H. Redner, 1868

"....for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger." 
Luke 2: 11-12

The greatest Christmas gift of all
Was never placed beneath a tree,
But lay within a manger
Beneath a star, for all to see. Unknown

From my home to yours, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year! 

Sharing from my heart ~ Sandi
