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.”
And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. 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: 1-2, 9b-11
Merry Christmas! Ryan, Darcy, and I are spending the day wearing Christmas pajamas, opening two sets of stockings (Nana gives us all stockings too!), and playing with Darcy's toy nativity. We're so excited to see the joy on his face and celebrate the birth of our Savior together!
Wishing you peace and joy, today and every day!
