The gospel according to St Luke, chapter 2, verses 10 and 11:  Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.  For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

What else do you say about Christmas?  What more need be said?

We’re celebrating with a quiet day…Mom’s “cherry goo” (Bohemian coffee cake) for breakfast and roast pork and speatzels for dinner.  We spent the weekend at Murchison falls, an early Christmas present for the family, at a safari lodge on the Nile.  Very nice.  Nile HippoLots of hippos, there’s a couple, a few elephants, lots of birds, a few crocodiles.  There were some Aussies in the river boat with us. Their reaction to the crocs was funny. ‘Those tiny things are crocs?’   We did finally see one 5m croc, on the way back from the falls. They allowed as how that was a real crocodile.

Last night, Christmas eve, we went to the annual Arua ice cream social.  Christmas carols, the reading of the Christmas story, and 27 flavors of ice cream.  Superb.

Isaiah chapter 9, verses 6 and 7:  “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. ”

Merry Christmas
