Simple + Southern Sunday No. 62

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
 Matthew 2:1-2“When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭2:10-11‬ ‭

We attended an Irish Christmas with Keith and Kristyn Getty last weekend!
Wonderful and worshipful!
Couldn’t resist.  Jared and Hunter look a little like they came straight out of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

Christmas exists because Christ was born. On December 25, it’s almost as if the world stops to have a celebration. Many around the world push everything aside and acknowledge the birth of Christ. Countless others celebrate, but without any thought of Jesus or who He really is. Even though many do not understand why he came, Jesus created quite a worldwide stir. We’d like to take you on a short tour to view Christmas festivities around the globe. Enjoy!

    I love looking at Christmas around the world with you. We spent the week prior to Christmas in Kauai and flew home Christmas Day. It definitely looked different than any of the Christmas scenes you showed.

We love your comments!
