Celebration Friday

Christmas is just around the bend. It's Friday and it's time to slow down. 
P a u s e.

Jesus is coming. 

No matter how dark and cold the night sky may seem. No matter the storm brewing.  

Jesus is coming....

I sit still, taking it in.

Sometimes things get darker to make His light more b r i l l i a n t.

Whatever that place is that you are longing for His light, may you find rest for your soul reflecting on these words. I leave you until the new year with my favorite Christmas carol:

O Holy Night!
The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviours birth;
Long lay the world in sin and error pining, 
'Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth. 
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, 
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn;

Chorus:Fall on your knees,
Oh, hear the angels voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night,
O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand;
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend;
He knows our need, 
To our weakness is no stranger. 
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace; 
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother,
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name;
Christ is the Lord,
Oh, praise His name forever!
His powr and glory evermore proclaim!
His powr and glory evermore proclaim!
