Word for the Weekend ~ Luke 2



"In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree

that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.

And everyone went to his own town to register.


So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea,

to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house

and line of David.

He went there to register with Mary,

who was pledged to be married to him

and was expecting a child.


While they were there,

the time came for the baby to be born,

and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger,

because there was no room at the inn.
Luke 2 : 1 - 7

I need to come back and reread this one again and again.....am so snowed under and trying to get my head above water and stuff finished, so I hope I don't lose track of the real Christmas.
