Thoughts for the Night of Christmas

When Christ physically came to earth as a baby,

he was born and he was called Emmanuel, 

meaning "God with us." 

When Christ physically left the earth, 

his last words were

 "I am with you always...even until the end of the age." 

As Christmas night comes to a close, 

let's be reminded that the message of Christmas is 

"God came to be with us;" 

and the best gift of all 

is that it is not for just one day...

it is for everyday...and forever.
