SHARING and CARING…it’s what LIFE is all about!

For Unto Us a Son is Given

Posted by on Dec 23, 2015 in Blog, Food for Thought, Quotes | 4 comments

Throughout the year—and especially at Christmas—I love to listen to Bethlehem, Galilee, Gethsemane. A powerful song! And no one better than Russ Taff to sing it!

Earlier this month I was reminded of that song through a portion of When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado and I’d like to share this quote and the song as my Christmas gift to you! Be blessed!

If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent an educator.

If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.

If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist.

But since our greatest need was forgiveness, God sent us a Saviour.

~ He loves each one of us like there was only one of us to love. ~

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

Merry Christmas and God’s richest blessings in the New Year!

    Thank you, Ruth and may His blessings be upon you this Christmas and in the New Year.

    The following is one of my favourite Christmas poems.

    Love came down at Christmas,
    Love all lovely, Love Divine,
    Love was born at Christmas,
    Stars and Angels gave the sign.
    Worship we the Godhead,
    Love incarnate, Love Divine,
    Worship we our Jesus,
    But wherewith for sacred sign?
    Love shall be our token,
    Love by yours and love be mine,
    Love to God and all men,
    Love for plea and gift and sign.

    Christina Rossetti, 1830 – 1894.

    Thanks Ruth, may we know the peace of Christmas every day of the year. Have a blessed New Year. I love this quote from our daily bread “The birth of Christ brought God to man; the cross of Christ brings man to God.
