The ego is offended by Jesus..
the heart bows down in thanks and praise…
the cells rise to meet Him and the body leaps for Joy!
“the wonders of his Love, the wonders of his Love, and wonders and wonders of his Love!”
I sang last night around midnight as a darkened sanctuary was illuminated by one Flame being passed from wick to wick until the whole room was ablaze in light:
“Glories stream from heaven…heavenly host sing, ‘Alleluia’…Son of God, love’s pure light, radiant beams from thy holy face, with the dawn of thy redeeming grace…wondrous star, lend thy light; with the angels let us sing, ‘Alleluia to our King; Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born”
Be still and listen; be still and KNOW!
“Angels bend near the earth; “peace on the earth, good-will to men, from heaven’s all-gracious King.” The world in solemn stillness lay to hear the angels sing…and still their heavenly music floats o’er all the weary world…above the sad and lowly…Yet with the woes of sin and strife the world has suffered long; beneath the heavenly hymn have rolled two thousand years of wrong; and warring human-kind bears not the tidings which they bring; O hush the noise and cease your strife and hear the angels sing. And ye, beneath life’s crushing load whose forms are bending low, who toil along the climbing way with painful steps and slow; look now, for glad and golden hours come swiftly on the wing; O rest beside the weary road and hear the angels sing. For lo! The days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old, when with the ever-circling years shall come the time foretold, when the NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH shall own the Prince of Peace their King, and ALL THE WORLD SEND BACK THE SONG WHICH NOW THE ANGELS SING!”
Stop circling and Own it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail! the Sun of righteousness! Light and life to all he brings, risen with healing in his wings. Mild he lays his glory by, born that we no more may die, born to RAISE each child of earth, BORN TO GIVE US SECOND BIRTH. Hark! the herald angels sing, ‘Glory to the new-born king!’ ”
“How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of his heaven. No ear may hear his coming; but, in this world of sin, where meek souls will RECEIVE him, STILL THE DEAR CHRIST ENTERS IN…Oh come to us, abide in us, our Lord Immanuel!”
“How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of his heaven!”
May it be on earth as it is in heaven, now and forever and ever! Hear the angels sing!! Own it and sing back the NEW SONG of Christ in you, the hope of glory!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And for my Christmas miracle…
a huge, perfect, fragrant red rose, found open and fully blossoming on the center rose bush amidst bare branches of the others; appeared with a fragrance like no other that permeates the air…an unexpected delight…awed by our Father’s great LOVE!
I wish you all a blessed Christ Day from my heart to yours ~Yvonne
