The Greatest Gift

God's gift to us was not wrapped in gold...but born in a lowly manger. Jesus is the greatest gift that we will ever receive.


Saints before the alter bending...watching long in hope and fear;
Suddenly the Lord His temple shall appear.
Come and worship.
Come and worship.
Worship Christ, the new-born King.

Wishing you and yours a most blessed Christmas!


  1. I'm still wide awake, and the dishes are stacked here and there and everywhere....
    I'm totally overwhelmed.
    Tomorrow is another day.
    Have a wonderful day!!!

  2. Merry Christmas Judy! I´m up early and since I have no kids home this year I am visiting my friends in "blog world"... :)

  3. Merry Christmas Judy and Elmer. .
    Isn't it just wonderful outside?. . .I love it.

  4. Merry Christmas!
    We couldn't get to church last night but are hoping to be able to get down the road later this morning for an 11 o'clock service. We've had so much snow and more is starting to fall - unbelievable!

  5. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Judy.

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful verse.

  6. Oh, just lovely! A perfect reminder of the true meaning of this day.


  7. Merry, Merry Christmas! Getting holiday wishes from a blog friend is equally exciting as receiving Christmas cards in the mailbox!

    I've really enjoyed your blog so much in 2008 and can am anticipating the many wonderful blessings our good Lord has in store for all of us for 2009!

    No one meets by accident, even in cyberspace. I'm very thankful to have found you. Happy New Year's to you and your family!
