For unto us a child is born

Christmascard christmascardback-for blogMerry Christmas from the Wegmanns! These cute little cards marched out from DC last week.  As I was designing them, James looked over my shoulder and this was his response: “Wait… so did we make those little signs and take pictures with them just so we could put them on our Christmas cards?!?” Yes. We did. Welcome to life with me.

So maybe it is just me, or maybe we are over thinking it, but we had a hard time picking a Christmas verse that didn’t sound like we were announcing a pregnancy (which we are not).   Here is the verse that I really love, so I am instead sharing it here. May you have the most blessed of Christmases!

***********

“The people who walk in darkness
will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
a light will shine.
 You will enlarge the nation of Israel,
and its people will rejoice.
They will rejoice before you
as people rejoice at the harvest
and like warriors dividing the plunder.
 For you will break the yoke of their slavery
and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.
You will break the oppressor’s rod,
just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian.
 The boots of the warrior
and the uniforms bloodstained by war
will all be burned.
They will be fuel for the fire.

For unto us a child is born,
    unto us a son is given.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
    And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor,Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

-Isaiah 9:2-6 (NLT)

      See, that’s what we were running into. Given that Christmas is about A BIRTH, we just didn’t want people to think it was about A WEGMANN BIRTH.

      Still glad you were sucked out… ; ).
