Merry ChristmasI want to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I trust your next year will be a blessed time for you.

Louise and I will be heading staying at home working on Louise’s recovery from her knee operation. We will miss seeing our family and friends during this joyful time of the year.

The following poem was written by our friend, Judi Williams. She is a gifted poet and has expressed our feelings about the meaning of Christmas. Have a very Merry Christmas.

Jesus, The Man

When Jesus came to be a man,
He satisfied God’s greatest plan.
This is the story of His birth,
And how the brings His peace to earth.

The angel came, there was a voice,
“Come all nations and rejoice.
It is the birth of God’s true Son,
Come and worship, everyone!”

His name is Jesus, Prince of Peace,
And from your sins He will release.
He’ll give you everlasting life,
And free you from all sin and strife.

Oh, Jesus, Jesus, He’s the One,
The Father’s only begotten Son,
The Prince of Peace, Emmanuel,
This is the Story the angels tell,

He came to you, a gift of love,
From your Heavenly Father above.
To reconcile man and God,
So heavy paths we’ll no more trod.

The love of God shines all around,
And in Christmas does abound.
All because of God’s great plan,
When Jesus came to be a man.

Praise God!

Personal Application:

I encourage you to continue sharing your love for the Lord Jesus.
