Because of Jesus...

Light of the World, born that day
The love of the Father...provided the way...

Human baby, brand new and crying
Heaven and all mankind were sighing...

Star of Christmas aglow with light
Because Christ Jesus was born that night...

His birth, life and death, God's sovereign plan
Created from His love... to redeem man...

May we as His children, born again by HIS love
Be filled with HIS light, as our eyes look above...

Christmas... the reason that joy lives within
the babe in the manger...now reigns as our King!

Special Christmas joy to each of you!

What a delightful visit! I sat here listening to what is my favorite Christmas song, staring at the nativity picture...the bright and shining star. I could almost feel myself being transported! Funny thing, Junebug was lying here beside me napping, and she sat up and stared at the screen as well, her little head tilting back and forth. What a blessed moment! Thanks for giving it to us.
