Christmas 2016 - A Very Good Year

Fear not.  

For behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men of good will..

Was this a bad year?

Dolly was sick and neglected and thrown out on the streets, and now she is happy, and healthy, and loved in a real home.

My son was working very long hours, but not enjoying his life. Now he finds joy in his new areas of study and work, and is at peace.

The queen was hard stricken, and could not walk or talk, and now she can do almost anything, and is back spreading kindness, warmth and joy.

And as for me, I was blind, and now I can see.

How can I not rejoice?
