A time to give.....

Praying that everyone is having a Christmas blessed with much love and joy - and that we all find time to reflect on what it's all about.

God bless.

Born to die ~ Bebo Norman

They never knew a dark night
Always had the Son's light on
their face
Perfect in glory
Broken by the story of untold
grace.... come that day

Majesty had come down
Glory had succumbed now to flesh
and bone
In the arms of a manger
In the hands of strangers that could
not know
Just who they hold

* And the angels filled the sky
All of heaven wondered why
Why their King would choose to be
Be a baby born to die

And all fell silent
For the cry of an infant, the voice
of God
Was dividing history
For those with eyes to see, the Son
would shine
From earth that night

To break the chains
Of guilt and sin
To find us here
To pull us in
So we can join in Heaven's song
And with one voice around the throne

All the Angels filled the sky
And I can't help but wonder why
Why this King would choose to be
Be a baby born for me
Be a baby born to die

Glad you had a good Christmas Mr Ed!!
Mine was beautifully crazy! Lots of strangers ended up at our place for dinner - and wow, what food. :) It was fun.

Those words are exceptionally beautiful, and I am stealing them to keep. Christmas is past but I will make good use of those words.
Thank you,
Happy New Year,
