Well, it looks like winter is here! The snow-covered trees look lovely & it is a bit easier to get into the Christmas spirit now. I wondered if the weather would deter folks from coming out last night to the Candlelight Service at Tyson Church, but that wasn’t the case – the church was filled!
The Mystery of Christmas –
Jesus coming as a child,
The 1st heartbeat of our Savior,
In a baby soft & mild.
Who can understand the meaning
Of this gift to all mankind.
It’s a mystery to ponder,
With the heart & not the mind
Though the world may seem in darkness
Wishing you a season bright,
Filled with peace & joy unending,
Brought by God’s Eternal Light
