Christmas Quotes and a Bible Verse...

Christmas Quotes and a Bible Verse

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea,
to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and
line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to
be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there,
the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her
firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a
manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch
over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and
the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But
the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of
great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. This will be a
sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in
a manger.”
- Luke 2:4-12

"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present,
hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with
blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
- Agnes M. Pahro

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round,
as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of,
in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent
to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them
as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another
race of creatures bound on other journeys."
- Charles Dickens

"As we prepare for our traditional celebrations, let us remember those
who will not be looking forward to this festival. Let us remember, too,
how Jesus identified with the oppressed and the homeless. Let the joy
of the festival touch more of the people of our world this year than
ever before. May God be glorified and may people of good will
once again experience His peace."
- Denzil John

"Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent,

and open a jar of it every month."
