The Christmas story is pretty straightforward, right? Just open up the New Testament and read all about it. Well, it's not quite that simple, so I decided to write out a harmony, like the Harmony of the Gospels found in the back of many Bibles. **At the bottom of the article, I’ve included a link to the chart I made, for you to view and/or download.
From my heart to yours
Snow is falling gently, and Pandora Radio is piping “Carol of the Bells” through my headphones. I made it out of my driveway (thanks, Keith and Zack!), and I found a copy of “The Snowman” on DVD and brought it home with me. But I’m not sure I can handle that much more sweet pleasure today. Perhaps I’ll save that for a blue day.
Serving our sweet Savior,
