Parrish Christmas Card on the Eighth Day of Christmas

On this Eighth Day of Christmas
And Throughout this New Year
May the Angels’ Song be YOUR Song!

Scott’s Imagining of an angel singing at night.

As in the Days of the Shepherds Long Ago
Who Were Drawn From their Work
To Witness the Greatest Gift of God,

May You also… Not Be Afraid.
May You Join in the Mighty Chorus,
May You Go on Great Adventures for God,
And May You Spread the Word
About the Mighty Works of God
which Continue Yet Today!!

Christmas Blessings in This Season and Throughout 2009

With Love,
Scott, Monica, Zeke, Sydney, and Cooper Parrish

Eighth Day of Christmas

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5: 3-10
