Suddenly an angel appeared on the mantel and they were terrified!
But the angel reassured them,
“Shazam! I bring you the best news ever,
and it is for everyone!
Put your celebration glasses on.
The Savior is here!”
—Luke 2:9-11 (paraphrase!)
It is a day of celebration, and every year we realize—in a deeper way—how blessed we are to know Jesus.
Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah and a gift from our good Father—the Father who loves us more than we can imagine. May we receive His love and give it away to others in extravagant ways this coming year. And through our love, prayers, and kindness, may we be a part of the world knowing, “Shazam! The Savior is here!”
Christmas blessings to you and your family—The Kathys
A Christmas Prayer
Loving Father, help us to remember
the birth of Jesus, that we may share
in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and the worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and
open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and
good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing
which Christ brings, and teach us to
be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy
to be Thy children,
and the Christmas evening bring us
to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake.
— Robert Louis Stevenson
