Christmas Light

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined… For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever… ~ Isaiah 9:2, 6-7a

Christmas First

The world was but a cradle,
When the infant child was born.
Nothing but a manger,
For which to keep him warm.

The angels’ chorus sang,
There was frankincense and myrrh.
But not a sound he made,
This child, with heart so pure.

No mortal man could see,
As the star shone down so bright.
How this small defenseless babe,
Would fill the world with light.

For on that peaceful night,
God sent his only son.
That one day he’d be a man,
Eternal life would come.

So let us now rejoice,
Our souls through him redeemed.
Remember not the presents,
But what Christmas truly means…

‎Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, ‘Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him’When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy ~ Matthew 2:1-2,10

………………………………………Gleaming Light

If I have brought a gleam of light
To cheer a darkened day,
If I held out a friendly hand
To help along the way.
Then in these acts of kindness done
It is not me you see,
But glimpses of that Loving One
Who chose to dwell in me.
