*An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters exactly once. For example, the word anagram itself can be rearranged into nag a ram, also the word binary into brainy and the word adobe into abode. The original word or phrase is known as the subject of the anagram. Any word or phrase that exactly reproduces the letters in another order is an anagram. Someone who creates anagrams may be called an "anagrammatist", and the goal of a serious or skilled anagrammatist is to produce anagrams that reflect or comment on their subject. The newly formed expressions are often reputed to give additional insights to the subject phrase.


Enrobed: The attitude that encompasses us--such as cheerfulness.


Name "December":
December got its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the calendar of Romulus c. 750 BC which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name. December contains the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere

Winter Solstice--The winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight and longest night of the year. It marks the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, which will occur on Thursday, December 21, 2023, at 10:27 P.M. EST.

Hymn of Christ the Lord

He Is Lord Lyrics-by Steven Vest
He is Lord, He is Lord!
He is risen from the dead and he is Lord!
Ev’ry knee shall bow, ev’ry tongue confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord.
