The Apple of Your Eye is usually on Sunday's. I felt it was more fitting that it should be posted today, on Christmas Eve. The readings over the past week have centered on prophecies fulfilled in Jesus and in His birth.
Over the past week and a half I've read the following.
Prophecies fulfilled in Jesus Christ:
2 Samuel 7:12-13
Psalm 2; 110
Isaiah 9:6-7; 42:1-7; 53
Joel 2:28 -32
Malachi 3:1-4; 4:2
Scripture telling the story of Jesus' birth and childhood:
Matthew chapter 1:1-25; 2:1-23.
Luke chapter 1:1-80; 2:1-52.
The next posting of The Apple of Your Eye will be January 12. I plan to take a little break before beginning a new year of blogging.

I love love love the Perry Como story of the first Christmas. I have wonderful memories of listening to this album on my dad's beautiful large Magnavox stereo.
