I try not to get pushy on this blog, but every so often I think I'm allowed to say what I think around here ;)
A warm and loving MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family. And may we not forget whom it is that we celebrate this time of year...
Thank you to Jesus, who saw fit to leave heaven, to live among us, and ultimately to die for us because He first loved us. Below are the words to one of my favorite Christmas songs by Chris Rice; I think they're prefect for today... *you can go here to listen - it's so beautiful*
Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God.
You've been promised, we've been waiting
Welcome holy child, welcome holy child.
Hope that you don't mind our manger
How we wish we would have known.
Long-awaited holy stranger
Make yourself at home, please make yourself at home.
Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be fed.
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world, welcome to our world.
Fragile fingers sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorns
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born, unto us is born.
So wrap our injured flesh around you
Breathe our air and walk our sod.
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God, perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world.
