And an angel appeared to Mary and said,
(Court, Christmas Angel, Nursery School Play, circa 1994)
Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God."
(Amanda, Chirstmas Dove, Nursery School Play, circa 1990)
"And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus."
And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them...
(Circa 1950/1960 manger that beloned to my mom)
...and the glory of the Lord shone around them;
and they were terribly frightened.
And the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid;
for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy
which shall be for all the people;
...for today in the city of David there has been born
for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. "
"And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger."
Wishing you all a blessed,
... peace-filled Christmas.
