Good morning.


Clement Clarke Moore begins his famous poem:

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;"


Taking up from there I, Mike, continue with my own version:


This was the story as children we'd hear

Told over and over as Christmas drew near

Anticipation gripped us, excitement arose

Hoping for gifts that in hope we chose.


As time passed and older we grew

We heard the old story, now fresh, now new

The angels declared good news to be received

"Fear not" the shepherds heard and so were relieved


Today the Saviour is born, in the city of David

The message was clear, the message was vivid

A Saviour has come - new life and forgiveness of sin

To all who would ask and welcome Him in


This is the gift that was given for all, this was the deal

The Son came from heaven, the Father's heart to reveal

So loved He the world that He became man

To those who received Him, eternal life was the plan


And so this Christmas with laughter and joy

Remember it's not about eating and drinking, not even a toy

It's all about Jesus, it's about our King

He alone is worthy of the praises we sing.


Have a joyous Christmas eve.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
