Blessed are you O Lord,our God, king of the universe and blessed is the name of your son, Jesus Christ, who is the reason we have Christmas. O how my heart sings of his holy birth. I can almost see and feel his tiny little hands in mine. Dear Lord , help all to know and believe in his worth as we would be lost if not for his coming. Merry Christmas to all and to the one who makes it real. Joy to the world, I pray. Amen.
