    Merry Christmas!

    I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Try to keep your spirits up! We are a strong Country and God is at our side.

    I have attached this poem:

    Ben Jonson (1572-1637)
    A Hymn on the Nativity of My Savior
    I sing the birth was born tonight,
    The Author both of life and light;
    The angels so did sound it,
    And like the ravished shepherds said,
    Who saw the light, and were afraid,
    Yet searched, and true they found it.

    The Son of God, the eternal King,
    That did us all salvation bring,
    And freed the soul from danger;
    He whom the whole world could not take,
    The Word, which heaven and earth did make,
    Was now laid in a manger.

    The Father's wisdom willed it so,
    The Son's obedience knew no "No,"
    Both wills were in one stature;
    And as that wisdom had decreed,
    The Word was now made Flesh indeed,
    And took on Him our nature.

    What comfort by Him do we win?
    Who made Himself the Prince of sin,
    To make us heirs of glory?
    To see this Babe, all innocence,
    A Martyr born in our defense,
    Can man forget this story?

    Have a Very Merry Christmas and God Bless!

    Sincerely,

    Mari Acosta, Los Angeles, CA
