Isaiah 9: 2, 6
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
Those who lived in a land of deep darkness –
on them light has shined.
For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
Authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
"The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understating, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
“…and do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
I John 3:18
Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
“Father, today I celebrate the reality of Your presence in my life. I celebrate Your birth, Your life, Your death and Your resurrection. And as I celebrate, Lord, help me to be "God with skin on" to those in need around me. Open my eyes and let me see them as You see them! I love You. Happy birthday Jesus! In Jesus name, amen.” - Mary Southerland, “Girlfriends in God”
