Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee, though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see, only thou art holy; there is none beside thee, perfect in power, in love and purity.
That is what is awesome about having a faith in God. . His love is perfect. His power is perfect.
My all time favorite Christmas hymn is "O Come O Come Emmanuel".
I can barely make it though without tears.
The lyrics that get me every time are..
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
I love that God chose a tiny baby to be a Savior. I love the hope and promise that comes from what happened in the stable all those years ago. I love that immediately after Christmas is a new year. The New Year offers many possibilites of what can be. Of resolving to do better, be better, to try and maybe finally make things right.
