It was beautiful today. It started out sunny and eventually became completely overcast, but the temperatures were in the low 60's. It would have been a gorgeous day to ride, but it was my turn to work, so I'm keeping watch over the network instead of enjoying this glorious day outside. The hubby and I celebrated our first Christmas together as a married couple, and our first year in our gorgeous new house yesterday and it was wonderful. We're very excited about the upcoming year, and celebrating all it brings with our friends and family.
Lilly and I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous 2013!
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”
— Luke 2:8-14
