Merry Christmas


Lake Level, Weather update  

Thanks to the dozens of city and parish employees and law enforcement, emergency workers, Claiborne Electric employees and volunteer workers who helped with the disaster Saturday caused by several tornadoes in our parish. Our prayers are with those who suffered damages and the sheer fright of this event. There’s no good time for that, but it is even worse at Christmas.  Even though it was bad, we had our own Christmas miracle in that there were not serious injuries and fatalities and that property damage was not much worse. Many people still have a tough road ahead to get back to normal. The torrential rains also caused Lake D’Arbonne, already high from above normal rainfall, to be more than two feet above flood stage. Lake Commission chairman Steve Cagle said that the lake stood at 82.1 feet on Christmas eve and is expected to crest at 82.41 in the next two days. The new tainter gate will not be used at this time, unless the lake is predicted to reach 82.5. That is the standard set for its use. The commission and the LDOTD are keeping a close eye on the situation.

The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.  And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid.I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord!
