Christmas Morning will be here soon! 

It Came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, the emperor in Rome, that all the world should be taxed. This taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. Everyone went to be taxed. each to his own city. And Joseph went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David to be taxed with Mary, his wife who was soon to give birth. So it came to pass that while they were there the day arrived for her child to be born. She brought forth her first born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the Inn. There in the same country shepherds staying in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And the angel of the Lord shone round about them and they were much afraid. Fear not the angel said to them for I bring you good tidings of a great joy that is coming to all people. For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign to you . You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying; Glory to God in the Highest. and on earth peace, good will toward man. When the Angels had left the Shepperd's said to one another, Let us go into Bethlehem and see this thing which has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us. They went with haste and found Mary and Joseph and the babe lying in a manger. And when the had seen it, they made known throughout the land what they had been told concerning this child. And all who heard it marveled at the things that were told to them by the Sheppard's.
