Christmas Tidings of Joy
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph,
and the baby,
who was lying in the manger.
When they had seen him,
they spread the word concerning
what had been told them about this child,
and all who heard it were amazed
at what the shepherds said to them.
But Mary treasured up all these things
and pondered them in her heart.
The shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God
for all the things they had heard and seen,
which were just as they had been told.
Luke 2:16-20 (NIV)
Know this: If you are born again by the Spirit of God, you have great and precious promises to treasure and ponder in your heart throughout the year ahead.
