Luke 1: 26-33 reads as follows, “and in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that are highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not Mary, for thou has found favor with God. And, behold, thou shall conceive in thy womb, and bring fourth a son, and shall call his name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom: there shall be no end.”

Readers, as you read this article I pray that you will have a wonderful, enjoyable, fun, spirit-filled and a highly blessed Christmas this year. May God continue to bless your life and those of your family members and of your friends from this moment forward.

Many family members and friends have touched our lives in so many, many special ways. One may have done things this way and another one may have done things that way. But, when all is said and done: loved ones and friends are special to the hearts of mankind, and they are worthy to be remembered.

The Christmas holidays are sometimes sad for some people, and it is a happy time for others. Whatever the situation is in your life just remember to try to lift someone else up in spirit, in joy and in love and you will be blessed. God loves mankind because he sent his son into this world. Have a blessed and a merry Christmas.”

We are asking for God’s comfort, his peace, his understanding, his love and his blessings to be with each of you today and the days to come. Special love and prayers are extended to everyone as you continue to go through this holiday season.
