SILENT AND BREATHLESS!

December 16, 2017

The service was coming to a close…

all was dark and silent;

but for the glow of a single candle,

much like the star on that special night.

Darkness soon changed to a joyous glow

as we all shared in the light!

Each hand held a lit candle

and each heart held the best gift of all . ..

an invitation to eternal life!

THIS IS HE!

December 15, 2017

Recieving three gifts,

born in meager surroundings,

came our infant King!

NOT JUST AN ORDINARY DAY!

December 8, 2017

It Began Like Every Other Day . . . But Then

Jesus

A simple peasant girl

Answered yes

To a question

Which surely shocked her

And the world was changed

Forever.

Thanks, Mary.

Why do we make Christmas such a conundrum when all we need to do is open our hearts and follow His lead?

Jesus

Answered yes

To a question

Which surely shocked her

And the world was forever changed!

HIS MOTHER KNEW

November 26, 2016

mother and child

Becoming

Soft lips touch my finger.

Teeth grip my knuckle.

Smiling eyes . . .

New tooth coming!

Marked by love.
