In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.

This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.

And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.

He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.

An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

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 2:1-20 New International Version

    “AllWorship” thank you for such a beautiful writing about the
    ​Birth of our Lord. I have been asking myself questions about it.

    What would you do if your birthday was coming up,
    and it was on Christmas and year after year, it was
    remembered less and less? Everyone was remembering
    to buy gifts for others and talking about Santa, but your
    birthday was being pushed in the background, because..
    you were just not that important anymore? Would you be
    mad, sad, feel unloved, broken hearted being forgotten?
    So you leave and go to your favorite spot to talk to the
    one person you know would understand. You know you
    can talk and cry and get it all out, this person will listen.
    Best friends always do and your best friend is Jesus. OH
    yes…HE will understand. HE always does. HE takes after
    His FATHER….GOD.
    My birthday isn’t even close to Christmas, but I began to
    think about how many people are forgetting, with some
    determined to strip “the true meaning of Christmas away.
    “Which IS the Birth of the Christ Child”. Those who don’t
    want anything that pertains to Jesus Birthday, maybe their
    birth and birthdays should be forgotten too. But then as I
    talk to HIM, my best Friend, I am reminded, JESUS IS LOVE.
    It isn’t my decision to make. I need to pray for them instead.
    ” Happy Birthday Jesus”.

    GOD bless, Gee Ma.
