Christmas Joy!

For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor,
Everlasting Father,
Price of Peace.
His authority shall grow continually,
and there shall be endless peace
for the throne of David and his kingdom.
He will establish and uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time onward and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
ISAIAH 9:6-7

Lord Jesus, thank you for coming into our world and joining in our human condition. You humbled yourself to us, joined with us as intimately as possible. Joined with all creation, our hearts cannot help but shout with joy!

This is a Christmas card we received yesterday from a missionary friend. It is beautifully hand painted on fabric - from Tanzania - and I wanted to share it with you.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and to thank you for your lovely, encouraging comments during the last year. May the peace and joy of Christmas be with you today and always.

God bless,


  1. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!

  2. Have a wonderful time Ros and thanks for these words.

  3. Wishing you and family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

  4. Thank you Ros - I hope you had a lovely day yesterday. My high point was arriving at Canterbury Cathedral when it was still dark and seeing the tree and the life-size crib lit up - it was so quiet and so beautiful!
