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.
|I give thanks;
To my precious Friend
and Savior, Jesus Christ.
For His great love and
compassion to me. His
death on the cross at
Calvary, that I may
receive the precious gift
of eternal life. For giving
me new hope and a reason
to live, so that every note
I play, every breath I take,
may be for Him.
