Over the last several days, I have departed from my normal daily writings …. Because of the Christmas and Holiday Season. I could NEVER substitute my own view of the ‘birth of Jesus’ for that of the Bible. So… I am… simply… sharing the story leading up to The Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ… taken from the Gospel of Luke 1:46-56.
“My soul gives glory to the Lord.
My spirit delights in God my Savior.
He has taken note of me
even though I am not considered important.
From now on all people will call me blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me.
His name is holy.
He shows his mercy to those who have respect for him,
from parent to child down through the years.
He has done mighty things with his powerful arm.
He has scattered those who are proud in their deepest thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones.
But he has lifted up people who are not considered important.
He has filled with good things those who are hungry.
But he has sent away empty those who are rich.
He has helped the people of Israel, who serve him.
He has always remembered to be kind
to Abraham and his children down through the years.
He has done it just as he promised to our people of long ago.”

… Many Blessings as we take a walk with Mary and Joseph leading up to the birth of the Child Jesus …cjlb… 12/23/2017
