Truly

Today, we sang my most favorite Christmas song in church - "O Holy Night"

It's hauntingly beautiful, but in addition to that, it just embodies all that is Christmas.  I tear up every time I hear it. 

Today, when we got to a particular point in the lyrics, I felt God speaking to me...

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!


I need to do this more - practice loving others.  Because, truly that is what He taught us.

Merry Christmas bloggie friends!

Love of the Father
Child in the Manager
Light in our darkness
God IS here!
