::"For unto us a child is born....

... to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

”He was poor, that he might make us rich.
He was born of a virgin that we might be born of God.
He took our flesh, that he might give us His Spirit.
He lay in the manger, that we may lie in paradise.
He came down from heaven, that he might bring us to heaven….

That the ancient of Days should be born.
that he who thunders in the heavens should cry in the cradle….
that he who rules the stars should suck the breast;
that a virgin should conceive;
that Christ should be made of a woman, and of that woman which himself made,
that the branch should bear the vine,
that the mother should be younger than the child she bare,
and the child in the womb bigger than the mother;
that the human nature should not be God, yet one with God

Christ taking flesh is a mystery we shall never fully understand till we come to heaven

If our hearts be not rocks, this love of Christ should affect us . Behold love that passeth knowledge!”

Thomas Watson.



~~~A very Merry Christmas to each and every one of you, and your families.

  3. Dear Rosie,
    We are just about to retire for the night after a wonderful Christmas Day. We drove up to Sydney early to spend the day with family, and drove back late this afternoon. Your Christmas Day is just beginning and I do hope it is a very happy and blessed day for you and your family. I enjoy reading your posts very much, even though I don't comment to often.
    Blessings Gail
