Jesus is the Reason for the Season

I know that is a clichéd saying, but it is the truth.  As much as we love the gifts, food, and parties, the true meaning of Christmas lies in that manger in the nativity scene.

A little baby, born to poor people, in the lowliest of circumstances, sent as a gift from God.  The poor shepherds and the rich kings were all told of his arrival and all were welcomed.  

What can I give him? Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
if I were a wise man, I would do my part, yet
what can I give him - give my heart.

In the Bleak Midwinter


  1. Lovely, Sarah! That is a favourite carol...those words (and the music) are beautiful....singing that last line always fills me up with love.

  2. Blessings to you and your family for this season!
