"Exceedingly Great Joy"


















" This is the donkey with precious load
trudging the long and weary road..."


"This is the Christ child, born to be king
While hosts of heavenly angels sing...."


Lauren is sick today with the stomach flu and this was the first book she chose for me to read to her. It really is lovely.

Matthew 2:9-10 (New King James Version)

9 When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

I like it just from the first two lines you shared! I keep forgetting to pull the Christmas books out so that I can start reading them to the kids. That's one of our Christmas traditions...If I can remember to actually do it!

I also need to get the Christmas books off the shelf and into the middle of the living room and famaily room.

Your book sounds lovely. Sorry about the stomach bug, though. I'll be praying she's better soon!

Is Lauren all better today,and no one else sick? Hopefully!
I miss SO MUCH the days when I snuggled with the boys by the fire and read Christmas stories.

Hey- my high school team name was 'Red Devils'. My conservative Christian parents never said a word when I would scream "Go Red Devils GO!"
Of course they also let me watch 'Bewitched' :)

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
