"Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."--The Gospel of Luke
May God Bless You and Your Families. Buon Natale.
#8: Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS Author: Cathy, Posted: Fri Dec 21, 2007 11:10 pm ---- Great quotes Biff!! We had a tradition of counting all our blessing every Christmas. We would make a list of every single thing we had to be thankful for. We made our Santa list and our list for Baby Jesus - the list of things we were thankful for. This year, at the top of my list are my new friends here at Gente. Your help, patience, assistance, guidance and generousity of spirit have made me a much better person. I have learned so much from all of you. Thank you friends!
