A Savior is Born!

It's been a wonderful year of blogging and meeting new friends. So with a grateful heart, I wish you all a Merry Christmas as I take a break from blogging until the New Year.

Friend, you can hear with listening ear,
and heart that responds to His voice.
Years have gone by since baby's first cry,
Still, in Jesus your soul can rejoice.
And the sound of that evening --
the joyful sound --
tells of faith that will save you by grace;
The Saviour will give you the peace that you seek,
as you walk in the light of His face!
Connie Faust



One of my favorite carols (and now one of my favorite artists thanks to sweet Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose who "introduced" him to us in one of her posts!) 

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Saviour

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do poor sinners good

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
On Christmas day in the morn


All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:  "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel" -- which means, "God with us".  Matthew 1:22

Celebrating this season of JOY and wishing you a 
Merry Christmas!
