I couldn’t let this one pass, so here is a special Saturday edition of the Buffet! It’s National Eggnog Day! So break out the eggnog ( non-alcoholic, of course!), and celebrate the season!
Oh and for some fun today with the family you can track Santa over at NORAD.
And just in case you are wondering, I am not shopping today – I finished yesterday – well ahead of schedule!Feliz Navidad!
18-21The birth of Jesus Christ happened like this. When Mary was engaged to Joseph, just before their marriage, she was discovered to be pregnant—by the Holy Spirit. Whereupon Joseph, her future husband, who was a good man and did not want to see her disgraced, planned to break off the engagement quietly. But while he was turning the matter over in his mind an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife! What she has conceived is conceived through the Holy Spirit, and she will give birth to a son, whom you will call Jesus (‘the Saviour’) for it is he who will save his people from their sins.”
22-23 All this happened to fulfil what the Lord had said through the prophet—‘Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’. (“Immanuel” means “God with us.”)
24-25When Joseph woke up he did what the angel had told him. He married Mary, but had no intercourse with her until she had given birth to a son. Then he gave him the name Jesus.Matthew 1:18-24 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)
