"And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people.
--- Luke 2:10

Another glorious day is here. Hope everyone is enjoying this season of all seasons. We are heading to the store today so I will make this quick. I love the greeting on the back of this postcard....the very last sentence.(click to enlarge)

Today is my girlfriend Gina's birthday, who is visiting from New York. Here is a pic taken the other night with her husband Jacques and sweet little girl Alexandra. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Gina!

Another lovely postcard from 1908. 100 years old !

Another song from www.christmas-songs.org
Hark The Herald Angels Sing
Hark the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold
Him come Offspring of a Virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Hail the heav'n-born
Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
"Hark! the herald angels sing", was written by Charles Wesley in 1739. The most popular music song is based on William Cummings adaptation of a Felix Mendelssohn tune.
