Tonight is the night of our dear Savior's birth. Last minute preparations are being made. For me, 1 showing today then wrap gifts, then off to make visits and partake in holiday cheer. Tonight is our Christmas Eve church service at Byfield Parish Church then lickety-split to ByFaith Fellowship Church where our youngest son attends.
For the Christian world, Christmas is a most holy time. A child was born. The only Real Estate available for his birth was in a manger, a place where animals bedded down. His name was called Emmanuel meaning "God with us". He had come to save the world not judge it. This song "O Holy Night" reaches my soul.
Another of my favorites is "Little Drummer Boy". The 3 wise men brought gifts of Gold, a symbol of kingship on Earth, Frankincense, a symbol of deity, and Myrhh, an embalming oil a symbol of death But we can bring nothing of value but ourselves, as we are to give to him just as He would give Himself for us.
My wish and prayer for each of you and your families is the following... You see it in every blog post I submit in Active Rain ~
I pray that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and bless you with peace...2 Thessalonians 1:2
