The baby who came at Christmas,
Sent from Heaven above,
Is the ultimate expression
Of God’s most intimate love.


He walked among the common folk;
Embraced humility;
The Lamb of God, he died for us
On a cross at Calvary.


But the story doesn’t end there:
He died then rose again
And sits at the right hand of God,
Ruler of Earth and Heaven.


Then God sent us the Comforter,
Who lives in each one’s soul;
Who counsels, helps and gives us grace;
Who quickens and makes us whole.


As we celebrate this Christmas,
Remember Easter, too:
Jesus was born and crucified;
Rose and ascended for you.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
