"Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." -Matthew 1:23
Every Christmas morning for as long as I can remember my family has gathered together to read the Biblical account of the birth of Christ before beginning the day's festivities. I love this part of our family's tradition, as it quietly focuses us on the true wonder of Christmas before we get caught up in the fun, fellowship, and food which the day will bring. Happy Christmas, and may God truly be with you.
