"What if Christmas he thought, doesn't come from a store"?

...and the Grinch with his Grinch-feet ice cold int he snow, stood puzzling, how could it be so? 
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. 
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. 
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before... 
"What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. 
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."
-Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch stole Christmas!

LUKE 2: 9-14
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,  "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

May your Christmas be wrapped in the blessings of His love

Merry Christmas, with love
