" Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill towards men!"

LUKE 2:14

We have heard this scripture many times ... in Sunday school, Christmas services, even the Charlie Brown Christmas special.

Such a simple scripture with powerful meaning.

Glory to God in the highest! : The word Glory comes from the Greek word dóxa, which means "praise, recognition, honor, worship ... the highest praise we can give God.

God sent not just one angel, but an army of angels to announce that Christ had finally been born!

Isaiah 9:6 calls Jesus the Prince of Peace. He is and was and will be a peace bringer first through his sacrifice...making peace between God and sinful man.

The promise of peace and goodwill come to those who welcome God's only son.

I love Christmas more than the average person...the lights, decor, food, gatherings, gifts, & festivities...
With the hustle and bustle of the this holiday season let's take a moment and remember what we are really celebrating ;)

And thank God is did send him. I don't know where I, or we, would be if he never came.

I shudder to think of it.

Love this!
I actually just wrote a blog about this very thing tonight. I have been so busy that I haven't been keeping up with my blog reading very well.
Thanks for the reminder, though! It really is important to stop and remember what Christmas is really about :) xoxo
