Christmas Blogmas, Day 4, My Book

I notice a lot of bloggers are posting, for the Blogmas,  about books.  I have to ask who has time?  Between the tree, house cleaning, trying to shop, pay bills, oh you know – general life but added activities, – I don’t have time to just sit and read.   Imagine if I had a job. 

So, here is my book share:  It is the book of Christmas.  It explains Christmas quiet well.  It gives me plenty of pleasure while I study it for hours on end.  It is the only reading I have time for, besides keeping up on blogs.  It is my large print Bible.  I am trying to do some more recent study on the Christmas story.  It has been years since I truly visited the story.  I am hopping around the verses and chapters.  Studying how each book is different in the retelling.  Even hopping into the Old Testament to reaffirm the meanings of words.

When I study something I keep notes, just like in school.  I don’t know if I will post anything about what I am learning and praying over, but I am reading.  So, I highly recommend you find time to check out the first four books in the New Testament.   Use as old of a version of the King James Bible as you can find.  For some reason all the “thee” and “thou’s”  etc seems so much more romantic and fitting for the season.

Matthew 1:18

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Luke 1:26

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

27  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
