Sunday: Christmas Day


In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
Luke ch 1: 1-7

    1. I love the painting. I post it each year. I think it reminds me of those precious moments just after each of my babies was born (not that I looked as lovely as Mary does!!!). It's the look on her face . . . sheer love.

      Thank you so much, Suze. Happy Christmas. xx
