May Your Heart Find Christmas

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. 

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 of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ 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, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” 

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s 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 they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Another logo and a variation of the first one I posted. Some expressed concern that it was too hard to read with photography overlapping red house. I’m still at work so no decision has been made. I’m also trying (desperately) to learn how to use my fabulous new camera. Wow. It is quite technical. While I have a manual I am having to wait until about May to get a good user’s guide to it (none published until then). As soon as I can I’ll get some pictures up that I’ve taken with it. However, I need to find the power button first. Anyway, here goes. Please give your input. If you still prefer the original, let me know. Other suggestions and ideas would be great too! Thanks!redhouselogocrop.jpg logogwork5-1crop.jpg  logowork6crop1.jpg PS-For some reason WordPress isn’t recognizing my paragraphs right now. Who knows why but it is seriously annoying me. Just so you know…oh…and perhaps “PHOTOGRAPHY” on the bottom logo should be smaller?
