After reading the opening lines for this week's book, here are my thoughts. There are no opening comments I need to make, because the beginning statements of this book make the perfect start for First Line Fridays this December. Happy reading and Merry Christmas friends!
Grab the book nearest to you and leave a comment with the first line!
Today I am going to post a line from:
Three Christmas Novellas
by Mary Connealy
And the first line is...
"And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David)...And the angel said unto them, 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 Savior, which is Christ the Lord...The shepherds said to one another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger...The star, which they say in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was."
Luke 2:4, 2:10-11, 2:15b-16; Matthew 2:9b

"The trouble with lassoing a Texas cyclone was--now you had a cyclone on the end of your rope. Then what was she going to do with it?"
Happy reading and happy Friday!
