Christmas... In {Some} Photos and Quotes

{all images my own}

“Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 

~ Luke 2: 10-12

I heard the bells on Christmas Day; Their old familiar carols play; And wild and sweet, the words repeat; Of peace on earth, good-will to men.  
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Merry Christmas! Long live the true king! 
-The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Joy to the world, the Lord has come! Let earth receive her King!
-Joy to the World

Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life. 
~Corrie Ten Boom 

“Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” … Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”  
~ Luke 1:28-33 

The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God.
-C.S. Lewis 

“Hark the herald angels sing, “Glory to the new-born king.” Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled! 
~ Hark the Herald Angels Sing

"Once in our world, a stable had something in it that was bigger than our whole world." 
~ C.S. Lewis

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
-Isaiah 9:6 


I'm sorry that this post is late today, but I know ya'll understand! It's been one of those days where everything take much longer than you imagined it would- which is why you get a photography post with a few quotes thrown in, instead of what I was originally planning. I'm sorry for the lack of "real" posts lately, but they'll resume soon- I promise!

Have a fantastic week celebrating the birth of our Savoir, Jesus Christ!
