For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;…
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (NASB)
This Christmas song encapsulates all our hopes and prayers:
A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a Child is born
And all of this happens, because the world is waiting.
Waiting for one Child; Black–white–yellow, no one knows…
But a Child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter,
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone’s neighbour,
And misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten forever.
It’s all a dream and illusion now,
It must come true sometime soon somehow,
All across the land dawns a brand new morn,
This comes to pass when a Child is born.
Here’s wishing everyone a Blessed and Holy Christmas! May we make room for Jesus in our hearts, in our families and in our lives.
