This is some Fall weather, isn't it? It was seventeen degrees in the Chicago area this morning and pretty much everything is covered in ice. And Winter doesn't even start for another three weeks. That's global warming for you.
[The shepherds] hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby [Jesus], Who was lying in the manger. When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this Child, and all who heard it were amazed... But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. --Luke 2:16-20
