Christmas Eve, 2008


[Adoration of the Shepherds]

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulders and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God..." Is.9

What a joyful time of year this is for Christians throughout the world -- even those who are being severely persecuted will probably give thanks for at least a few moments in the days ahead. Remember, Orthodox Christians won't celebrate Christmas until early January. I pray that all creation will know a measure of peace during this season of grace.

Then, as a special gift to the Christ Child, I have done a drawing of a "Morning Glory Vine". A humble flower but wherever it blooms, it always brightens the the beginning of each day.

It is almost time for me to go and place the baby in the crib of my creche while the strains of Handel's Messiah will be playing in the background.
May you all have a joyous holiday season.
