The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you Peace. (Numbers 6: 24-26)

December 22 - Only a few days more!

The first stanza of a wonderful Christmas poem "On the Morning of Christ's Nativity":

          This is the month, and this the happy morn, 
          Wherein the Son of Heaven’s eternal King, 
          Of wedded maid and Virgin Mother born, 
          Our great redemption from above did bring; 
          For so the holy sages once did sing,
          That he our deadly forfeit should release, 
          And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.
                                                            John Milton (1608-1674)

          God bless us, every one.
                                  Charles Dickens (A Christmas Carol, 1843)
