Merry Christmas, my precious friends. No matter what your day looks like or feels like, I pray you have a moment of rapturous joy as a redeemed child of God.
The great orator of a century past says it so beautifully:
We esteem every day alike, but still, as the season suggests thoughts of Jesus, let us joyfully remember our dear Redeemer’s glorious birth. Who but He was ever longed for by such a multitude of hearts? When did angels indulge in midnight songs, or did God hang a new star in the sky? To whose, cradle did rich and poor make so willing a pilgrimage, and offer such hearty and unsought oblations? Well may earth rejoice; well may all men cease their labor to celebrate “the great birthday” of Jesus. Let gladness rule the hour; let holy song and sweet heart music accompany our soul in the raptures of joy.
– Charles Spurgeon
Love, hugs and many blessings from the Grasso’s on this Christmas Day.
