the week is here! my pastor was talking this morning about how much he loves christmas. he said he loves it all- lights, hot cocoa, christmas movies, christmas music...his list was hilariously long. and after each one i was like uh-huh, uh-huh, yep, uh-huh! i just love it too! every twinkling light and snowy scene pointing to the wonder of Jesus. i am filled with awe at the God who came to be with us that first christmas. his goodness abounds, his love is lavish, and his gift is immeasurable. i am excited to celebrate his son, born that man no more may die. woohoo!
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
i'm going to be taking the next two weeks off from blogging so that i can savor this time... spend quiet time with our family, rest and rejuvinate, and worship the king with this playlist on repeat!
thank you again and again for being a reader of this blog. i am wishing you and yours the merriest of christmases & a joyful and triumphant new year!
