Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you!

We’ve had a relaxing day with our family.  Gentry drove in from Houston on Sunday; Hunter moved back home for a couple of weeks; Jesse & Ashley came over for the day.  They’re working on a Van Gogh puzzle right now…and it’s not very easy!

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

In years past, I’ve shared a Christmas carol that was meaningful that year.

  • Have you ever considered the words of “O Come All Ye Faithful”? They contain parts of the Nicene Creed.
  • “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” reminds us that Jesus is the Prince of Peace, giving us peace in a world of turmoil.

As we sang “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, I loved singing the Christmas story.  What was most special to me was the conclusion.  My response to Christ’s birth should be PRAISE.

This Christmas, I realized that I have not praised Christ for his humility, sacrifice and omnipotence as much as I should.  I am praying that I will spend more time each day “praising” God, not going straight to my requests.

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface:

And…the first verse summarizes the Christmas story!  Read it with your kids.

For Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born upon this day,
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we were gone astray:

O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.
