Glory to God in the highest...

...and on earth, peace among those with whom He is pleased. Luke 2:14 ESV

Merry Christmas.

Today's post is short and simple. My prayer for today is that God would grant you peace as He takes pleasure in you.

I leave you with on of my favorite Christmas songs. It is one that I have never heard played on the radio. I've never heard it sung any where other than on a collection of Christmas songs CD that we picked up sometime ago. Chances are good that unless you heard it here a couple of years ago, you may not have heard it either. It's a great song and it tells a great story.

If you want to know the story behind the song, you can re-read this post and listen to its video link.

Merry Christmas

Thats a beautiful story. If only that sort of peace can come over more people in the world.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

John Hill said...

Thank you, Amanda. I trust that you, Richard and the boys have had a great Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas!

I never heard that song, although I'm well aware of the story of the Christmas Truce. John, I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed Christmas and a safe, happy, and healthy new year! This year, I finally managed to meet up with Mike ... perhaps in 2013 you and I can finally get together! Best wishes, Bilbo.

John Hill said...

I hope that we can meet, Bill. I'm in need of some classic curmudgeon instruction!

Blessings to you and Agnes for a happy 2013!

Mike said...

It could happen again. Maybe in 2114 for the 100th anniversary.

Merry Christmas.

2014...It would be nice if it lasts for 100 years.

Merry Christmas to you and Claudia. We'll have to plan a Ted Drewe's meet this year!
