O come, O come, Emmanuel is a translation of the Latin text (“Veni, veni, Emmanuel“) by John Mason Neale and Henry Sloane Coffin in the mid-19th century. It is a metrical version of a collation of various Advent Antiphons (the acrostic O Antiphons), which now serves as a popular Advent and Christmas hymn. Its origins are unclear, it is thought that the antiphons are from at least the 8th Century, but “Veni, veni Emmanuel” may well be 12th Century in origin. The text is based on the biblical prophecy from Isaiah 7:14 that states that God will give Israel a sign that will be called Immanuel (Lit.: God with us). Matthew 1:23 states fulfillment of this prophecy in the birth of Jesus of Nazareth

Yeah, the guy talking has ALS. And Jeff Flake looks so concerned but I do not believe for a nanosecond that he’ll do what is right.
I am so worried for thousands upon thousands of people with health conditions that will lose their health coverage.

Good Morning, 3 Chics Family & Friends. Have a Blessed day.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the Christmas music this month, and particularly O come, O come, Emmanuel .Thank you for the music, SG2.
Ditto. The church music is my favorite for Christmas. Always has been.
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel is so beautiful but makes me feel sad tho. I think about my mama and daddy.
I know. That’s the sad part of the holidays. But y’all are making new memories with the grandchildren. These are the Christmases they will remember and cherish. So being a part of that is kind of awesome.
I gave Haley and Jay some peppermint sticks yesterday and later that afternoon my oldest said he’d like a peppermint and Haley went into this one cabinet and got some out to give him. I asked her how did she know I had more? Haley said, granny, you keep candy in there every year. bwa ha ha ha ha
SG2, the memories of your parent brings happy, warm time.
With each grandchild, especially CARSON, you’ll have the opportunity to channel that sadness and help create new, happy, and loving memories for you and your family.
Thank you, Ametia.
Go to HELL, Shelby. Your fake “NOPE NOD” I so predictable. He knows Moore and the dumb,dumb voters will vote for him no matter what. He’s part of the culture in Alabama
I wouldn’t put money on this race either way. The less enthusiastic Trump voters might not show up and that could swing it to Doug Jones, but who knows?
Good Morning, Everyone 😄😄😄
Good Morning, Rikyrah!
