I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We traveled to Arkansas to visit my family. We (30 of us) gathered at my 93 year old grandma's house and had Thanksgiving dinner. She was thrilled to have everyone there even though she is starting to have trouble remembering things and even people sometimes. I lived with my grandma during my high school years and I am so thankful for her. We never had much but she gave so much of herself to me over the years. Thank God for grandmas.
I have been remiss in posting a verse so I will remedy that. I think a series of verses about the birth of Jesus from now until Christmas would be good so here goes....hope you enjoy.
Verse of the week...
In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
....."Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
