FAMILY DEVOTION TIME:

Help your kids memorize our weekly Bible verse!

MEMORY VERSE: Luke 2: 13-14 ~

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, goodwill toward men!"

Whenever I read this verse, I hear it in the voice of Linus! 😁You know... Linus van Pelt, Charlie Browns philosophical friend, Lucy's little brother who drags around his security blanket, sucks his thumb and prattles

off words of wisdom to his "Peanuts" gang of buddies.

In "A Charlie Brown Christmas", Charlie Brown is bummed out about his puny little Christmas tree and cries; "I guess I really don't know what Christmas is all about."

Linus answers: "I can tell you what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown....Lights, please."

Linus steps under the spotlight, swirls his blanket up in the air around his head and instantly becomes a Shepherd to recite the Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke.

"For behold, I bring unto 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 Savior, 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 the Heavenly Host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men."

Then Linus turns, picks up his blanket and walks toward Charlie Brown and says;

"THAT'S WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT CHARLIE BROWN!"

It's not the Jingle Bells, the tinsel, the parties, or the presents under the tree.

It's all about one thing and that one thing is JESUS!!!

Listen to Linus; Jesus is what Christmas is all about! Jesus is the reason for the season!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!

Donna Lind ❤
