I enjoy using Amazon for many reasons which include not getting out in the rain (it has rained here for 4 days straight and I don’t live in the Northwest!) I usually find what I am shopping for and I enjoy free shipping!
There will be only one gift card winner and but everyone can get free shipping on Amazon using Amazon free shipping codes. For free shipping click here.
Speaking of shopping, did you shop on Black Friday? I did not. I don’t like the crowds even though an item on “sale” usually catches my attention.
How about Cyber Monday? Did you shop online yesterday? I did not. Usually, I would have but upcoming travel dictated that my shopping and Christmas gift plans be done before yesterday. (Hint to my kids and grandkids … gifts will be in the mail by Friday – but DO NOT OPEN UNTIL Christmas!!)
I am excited to to share this giveaway and I hope ALL of my readers will want to enter to win the gift card. Good luck and happy shopping!
The Birth of Jesus Christ from Luke 2
In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed,[b]who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger because there was no place for them in the inn.
The Shepherds and the Angels
8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”[c]
15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
