A Christmas Blessing

Our Child is Born

For unto us this love is born
Unto us this grace is given
This infant head will rest
upon our shoulders
And we will call this child
Wonderful, Darling One
Light of God
Everlasting Joy
This precious life

Based on Isaiah 9:6-7

In the midst of darkness, in the midst of winter, in the midst of failing health and personal struggles, love is waiting to be born into our lives. God issues the invitation moment by moment. May we all have the courage to let go of the savior we expected and embrace the unexpected unlikely gift God offers us instead.

Unto us love is born!

What a blessing! I just discovered this blog after reading the article Cathy wrote in the January-February issue of "Alive Now". Find it and read it, all you seekers!
