“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).”
Warm greetings sweet friends! Can you believe that in less than a week Christmas will arrive? A couple of years ago I received a gift that totally took me by surprise. The lovely Pat from Life at Lydia’s House gifted me with her own designed Christmas dinnerware “Bethlehem Christmas”…and you talk about a lovely gift! There are 8 different designs that share the birth of Jesus according to the scriptures. I am so excited to use it for our family’s Christmas once again and to share our table with you!
Once again I’ve asked Butch to share the lyrics of a song he wrote a few years ago. We have such a love for music so it seems fitting to use the words of a song to caption this Bethlehem Christmas. As you gather around our table it is our prayer that each scene will reveal the reality of the Christ child!
Heaven’s joy in a manger makes my heart sing
A gift of love all wrapped in grace, His Spirit is His seal
With ribbons of joy and hope, For whosoever will!
In a manger in Bethlehem; there lies a stranger in a foreign land.
Heaven’s joy in a manger makes my heart sing.
Holy love in a manger, Christ the King!”
