As a child we would all gather as a family at grandpa and grandma’s house on Christmas day. There we would eat, share gifts, and enjoy each other’s company. The highlight was when grandma would recite the Christmas Story found in Luke 2 from memory. I can still picture her standing in the living room saying, “And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
She was an amazing woman and I miss her very much. As a tribute to her and in honor of Christmas I have posted the New King James Version of Luke 2.
