May God bless you and your family during this holiday season. My family and I celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus. However you choose to celebrate, I hope you find happiness and a sense of comfort, peace and strength.
Here are some quotations from the Holy Bible that depict the life of Jesus Christ.
JESUS’ BIRTH: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11 KJV).
