Welcome December



Welcome December ...
     
       this beautiful month of expectations
       full of dreams, full of hope
       excitement in the air

       we stand in line and search
       for perfect gifts for those we love
       taking time to show we care

       sweet children take center stage
       all ages becoming as children again
       enjoying the simple and the surprises

       our homes are decorated
       cookies are baked, candles are lit
       warmth and love fills each room     

       our hearts are tender, longing for home
       travel plans are formed
       and loved ones fill our thoughts

       this beautiful month of expectations
       full of dreams, full of hope
       all a warm and precious picture 
       of our deepest longings and yearnings
       for a Savior, for our forever home


Because of God's tender mercy,
the morning light from heaven is
about to break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
and to guide us to the path of peace.
(Luke 1:78-79)

Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call Him Immanuel,
which means 'God is with us'.
(Matthew 1:23)
