To you and yours....

Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas! There's lots of celebrating to be done. Enjoy this magical time of year. And remember: Immanuel: God is with us!! See you after Christmas.

The golden name, Immanuel, is inexpressibly delightful. It is a word fit for the lips of cherubim for its majesty, but, because of a marvelous condescension, none but men can utter it. He is not so with seraphs as He is with us. Immanuel, "God with us" (Matt.1:23)--in our nature, in our sorrow, in our lifework, in our punishment, in our grave, and now with us, or rather, we with Him, in resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendor. The babe of Bethlehem appears to be manifestly with us in weakness and in poverty. Let us not forget that He is equally with us in His glory and honor. Faith clasps the child, and love kisses Him with the kisses of her lips. Oh, for true spiritual fellowship with Immanuel all this day! ~Charles Spurgeon "Morning and Evening"
