tidings of great joy...

Concerts and choirs...
lights and trees.
Cookies and candies and nuts...
and those sweet little oranges.
And even snow!

And Christmas cards in the mailbox from friends near and far.
And a heavy parcel delivered to the door...
 from our friends in Switzerland.
We shall have Swiss chocolate for Christmas!
And watching the grands open their gifts.

They are all things I enjoy about Christmas.

But what brings me real joy?

A Saviour...
who is Christ the Lord.

Only He can cast out fear...
and bring joy.

"Fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy."
Luke 2:10KJV

Wishing you joy this Christmas!
