How silently, how silently, The wondrous Gift is giv'n! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His Heav'n.
No ear may hear his coming; But in this world of sin, where meek souls will receive Him still, The dear Christ enters in." From the Christmas Carol...'O Little town of Bethlehem'.
Did you ever hear such a beautiful definition of being 'born again'? To me it goes hand in hand with...
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name;Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." Oh Thank you Jesus, for saving my soul! John 1:12,13.
How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I am as busy as a bee here. Our daughter and her family arrives late tonight or tomorrow and I still have lots of things to do. My biggest challenge is where to store the things I displace with decorating!
