Luke 2

 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

    Merry Christmas everyone. It’s twice as warm as yesterday morning here at 15*. Going to get up to freezing here. The little pond next to our house it frozen, first time we’ve seen that. But gradually over the next days temps are going to creep back up into the sixties.

    I hope you all have a wonderful day.

    Good almost-afternoon All. Merry Christmas. We are at 25* here, the same as where my friend in Florida. LOL. She says it is breezy and really cold. I am just glad it warmed up a little. Loki got to spend a little time outside this morning. She ran up the sidewalk one way and then the next. I think she really needs the exercise. I plan to try to get to the mailbox today. We will see how it goes. If it gets just a little warmer, I might take Loki with me.

    Hope you all woke up to a wonder morning. I think my granddaughters are better, but I haven’t talked to them yet. I just got a picture of them around the tree this morning.

    Again, Merry Christmas.

      Good afternoon! It’s 16 degrees here in Chicagoland this morning. The dogs are much happier than they were the past couple of days, as they came back in with frozen paws.

      Merry Christmas to you, mom! Give Loki a hug for me. Here’s Tucker on Christmas Eve:
