Oh, Holy Night!

It was a special night...
...in some ways, a holy night.
 Friends gathered in this warm and welcoming home
to sing, share, and eat.
The words of one of the carols ESPECIALLY stood out to me this evening:
♪ The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend!
He knows our need—to our weakness is no stranger.

Behold your King; before Him lowly bend! ♪
Those middle two lines!  
Ah.  Those middle two lines...
This ornament - crafted by our Sunday School teacher and given to each of us Sunday morning.


  1. What a sweet time you all had together. Those are two great lines to that song.

    Love the ornament ~ Happy Christmas week and day, dear Rebecca ~ FlowerLady

    1. Yes, AREN'T they (those two lines....)!
      The ornament is very special. It's our first year in this group - but apparently those who have been in it for a long time have enough of his hand-made ornaments to decorate a small tree!
      I wish YOU a joy filled week and Christmas Day as well, Lorraine. ♥

  2. Yes! The lyrics to Christmas hymns have some of the best lyrics ever!

    1. Agreed! To me it's like the Hallelujah Chorus of Christmas :)

  3. What a precious ornament. Just wanted to stop by and say "Merry CHRISTmas". HOPE your day is full of blessings.
