Good Tidings of Great Joy!




And behold, an Angel of the Lord stood near them, and the brightness of God shone around them, and they were struck with a great fear. And the Angel said to them: "Do not be afraid. For, behold, I proclaim to you a great joy, which will be for all the people. For today a Saviour has been born for you in the city of David: he is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger."

And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the celestial army, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will." (Luke)

A Blessed Christmas to all of you! (The angels were made by our sons many years ago, and I still put them out every year.)

Aww how lovely! I still put things on our tree that me and my mum made when I was little! Memories kept alive are the best ones!

Awesome angels! And I'm so glad you enjoy them. My mom gave me all of my old Christmas ornaments BACK several years ago. Humph. YES I know she wants to have a *designer tree* these days, but STILL...

These are sweet. I missed them because I don't blog on Sundays. I wouldn't have known they were here if you hadn't mentioned them in your comment.

Hi Rosezilla ~~ How nice that you saved those angels that tell the true meaning of Christmas.
Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoy the jokes. Poor Herman, and the Pharmicist father.
Have a wonderful Christmas my friend, Love, Merle.
