Happy Twelfth Day of Christmas
I have been rather silent on my blog lately. I hope to share a couple of writings with you each week. My health issues continue to be a challenge at times but I am thankful to our loving Heavenly Father who sustains me and upholds me when I grow weary. I am grateful for a husband who loves me and gives me encouragement each day. He is a treasure and a gift from God to me. My boys bring me more joy than I ever imagined and so I am focusing on all that is good in my life.
Over the past couple of years I have included political commentary on my blog. I have decided to create a new blog which for my political thoughts.
My original intent for this blog was to share God's word and a place to share devotional style writings. It will be better to keep the political commentary separate from here. Over the next couple of weeks I will remove the politcal writings and links from my blog.
I would like to share with you my favorite Christmas Hymn. I will post the words underneath. May it bless you and remind you of the great love our Father has for you.





Of the Father’s love begotten, ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending He,
Of the things that are, that have been,
And that future years shall see, evermore and evermore!

At His Word the worlds were framèd; He commanded; it was done:
Heaven and earth and depths of ocean in their threefold order one;
All that grows beneath the shining
Of the moon and burning sun, evermore and evermore!

He is found in human fashion, death and sorrow here to know,
That the race of Adam’s children doomed by law to endless woe,
May not henceforth die and perish
In the dreadful gulf below, evermore and evermore!

O that birth forever blessèd, when the virgin, full of grace,
By the Holy Ghost conceiving, bare the Savior of our race;
And the Babe, the world’s Redeemer,
First revealed His sacred face, evermore and evermore!

This is He Whom seers in old time chanted of with one accord;
Whom the voices of the prophets promised in their faithful word;
Now He shines, the long expected,
Let creation praise its Lord, evermore and evermore!

O ye heights of heaven adore Him; angel hosts, His praises sing;
Powers, dominions, bow before Him, and extol our God and King!
Let no tongue on earth be silent,
Every voice in concert sing, evermore and evermore!

Righteous judge of souls departed, righteous King of them that live,
On the Father’s throne exalted none in might with Thee may strive;
Who at last in vengeance coming
Sinners from Thy face shalt drive, evermore and evermore!

Thee let old men, thee let young men, thee let boys in chorus sing;
Matrons, virgins, little maidens, with glad voices answering:
Let their guileless songs re-echo,
And the heart its music bring, evermore and evermore!

Christ, to Thee with God the Father, and, O Holy Ghost, to Thee,
Hymn and chant with high thanksgiving, and unwearied praises be:
Honor, glory, and dominion,
And eternal victory, evermore and evermore!

Love your blog! I am looking forward to reading more. It was so nice to meet you yesterday. I have been praying for more Christian writing friends, so I know our meeting was a God appointment. You've inspired me to start blogging more. Blessings to you!
