Christmas 2006

A prophet of long ago said it like this – “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

But it all began in the beginning and it tells it like this – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in Him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”

When time was fully come, this birth announcement was given to a group of shepherds by an angel – “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

The Spice joins me in wishing you and yours the most joyous and peaceful Christmas ever. May the Lord of peace be with you not only in this season but also all this next year. ec

Thank you, Mr. Eddie. I believe the “Christmas” story from John’s gospel is as important to hear this time of year as the ones in the gospels of Mathew and Luke.

Bonita - We did indeed have a great Christmas. And I have enjoyed the outlet of writing and hope to continue as the Lord leads.

SSN - Though not as detailed as the others, John's words are so meaningful with so much put into so few words.

Jayleigh - Thanks, we had a great time - hope you guys did as well.

Ann - Thanks and hope your Christmas was great as well. And that is so true, even though we don't know when, each day we are that much closer to meeting Jesus. ec
