It is written, "And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from Casear Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And this taxing was first made when Cy-re-ni-us was Governor of Syria. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of David, which is called Beth-le-hem; [because he was of the house and lineage of David]: to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country, shepherds aiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of THE LORD came upon them, and the glory of THE LORD shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel of THE LORD said unto them, 'fear not! for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ THE LORD. And this shall be a sign unto you: ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger'. And suddenly, there was with the angel, a multitude of heavenly host praising GOD and saying, 'glory to GOD in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will toward men.' And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, 'let us now go even unto Beth-le-hem and see this thing, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it, wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising GOD for all the things which they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. " Luke 2:1-20. King James Holy Bible.
Merry Christmas to all! Feast, open gifts, celebrate life and the birth and salvation plan of JESUS. Give glory, honor and praise to THE LIVING LORD .
Also, for the record: I am white,a woman, single, obviously christian, and the natural mother of two grown daughters who are Jennifer and Leigh, and also an Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but for many yars in Georgia first]; and an artist in all mediums. I was born in the state of Georgia and graduated from the University of Georgia and the Georgia Baptist College of Nursing. I never had a Facebook acct nor a Pinterest account [and do not want either of those] and I never lived in Florida. I have been married twice and divorced twice, and after each divorce I resumed my maiden surname of Poole. I am single at the moment, and this is not a shared account with anyone. So if you are googling my name, make sure you read the correct information.
