Advent

nativity-sunrise-andrew-soundarajan

Looking back;
Remembering the story
Of God’s life among us;
His wonderful glory:
A day long ago,
When a baby was born
To bring a new covenant
To the world so forlorn.

 

Watch for the day
When Jesus comes again
To gather His people;
All promises attend.
A day filled with awe
And ecstatic delight,
Together with the Bridegroom,
A celebration bright.

 

When it’s time,
Neither early nor late;
Lord Jesus will return
In His glorious state
Until then, we live,
Depending on His grace
And look forward to that day
When we meet face to face.

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 Jesus...now, 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.
