Merry Christmas

Hello High Hopes Fans!

We wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas! 

"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord."

"This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

"Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 
"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 
"Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, 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 at what the shepherds said to them. 
But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things in which were just as they had been told. On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given Him before He was conceived."
~ Luke 2 8:21

"After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, 
Magi from the east came to Jerusalem…
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and bowed down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasured and presented Him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh."
~ Matthew 2:1-11
