For this reason, a little girl, heard the voice of God and believed for a miracle
For this reason, a man torn and at crossroads hearkened to the voice of God’s angel
For this reason, He came leaving behind His splendor, laying aside His crown
For this reason, He lived as a man, walked as a mortal, feeling the same pain we feel
For this reason, He went about doing good, healing the sick, raising the dead, setting all who were captive free
For this reason, He died a brutal death, separated from the love He’d always known – For US!
For US He defeated hell, death and the grave, FOR US !!!
That we may now sing as the angels sang, JOY TO THE WORLD, THE LORD IS COME!
For this reason, FOR US – That we may have joy, peace, laughter and love…
So today ….
Let the joy of the Lord bring to your lips a new song
Let the peace of God settle your fears
Let the laughter He brings heal your soul
And fill your heart and yours with extravagant love
Merry Christmas to you from me, with much much love…
