Today is Christmas 2013. It is almost unbelievable that we are again celebrating Christmas. It seems 2013 flew by in record time! I want to keep my post today simple. But I want to share the third verse of my favorite Christmas carol, "O, Holy Night." The message in this beautiful song is the gospel. May this Christmas find you loving God and others, from a heart overflowing with peace and hope. Merry Christmas, everyone!
"Truly he taught us to love one another;
His law is love and his gospel is peace;
Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother,
And in his name, all oppression shall cease,
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we;
Let all within us praise his holy name!
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we!
His pow'r and glory, evermore proclaim!
His pow'r and glory, evermore proclaim!"
