In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Genesis 1:1-3 KJV
It is Christmas Eve, it is a time to prepare for the celebration to come. The Missus Herself and Your Humble Scribe are traveling north to spend the Christmas holiday with my mother, my two brothers, a sister-in-law, a nephew, a niece, my Mom's two felines, and (so I've been informed) my niece's new beau.
It should be fun.
As you celebrate, please remember the reason why we celebrate. Spare a moment as well for those who are not feeling all that joyful this year. I know friends and acquaintances who have lost loved ones since the last time we celebrated the birth of the Savior. No doubt for them there will be little, if any, joy. They simply wish to endure this holiday and hope that things will be better in the year to come. Pray for them.
My prayer for you is that you know peace and that you know love.
The world has enough darkness, be a light unto the world.
Merry Christmas my friends.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1:1-5 KJV
