Capitol Grounds are beautiful
Just days after the tree lighting ceremony on the Capitol Grounds, we had our first “good” snowfall of the season. That evening my wife and I decided to drive downtown to see the lights: What a treat. Snow falling, ice skaters at the Arlington rink with main street ablaze in light and color. Then the Capitol Grounds appeared, what a sight to see! Traffic was very light, so we passed several times in front of the Capitol building to take it all in.
Carson City truly knows how to bring the Christmas and holiday season home. Many, many thanks to one and all who spent countless days and hours setting up the Christmas lights for all to enjoy.
If you have not as yet taken in the lights of downtown, I encourage one and all to do so.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays,
Byron and Valorie Morgan
Jesus is all I want for Christmas
The most precious gift I have ever received
Was not beautifully wrapped with a fancy bow
It was when God sent his only begotten son
To save me from my sins so long ago.
For, it was so very long ago in a stable so forlorn,
That shepherds came to witness when a tiny babe was born
As the star shown bright on that Christmas night
New hope to all was given
So everyone upon the earth
Might have their sins forgiven.
Some are blind and refuse to believe,
But we will never be the same
For all who come to love him
And call upon his name.
The son of God, born of Mary
On that first Christmas Day,
Let us praise our savior
As we bow our heads and pray.
Thank your heavenly father for his countless blessings
And his endless abundance of love
Gifts of mercy, grace and forgiveness
Given by our heavenly father above.
