Merry Christmas!


Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

I love this picture--the tree looks exactly like the scrawny things my Dad used to bring home every Christmas!

My favorite Christmas hymn and one I've been humming the last few days- my partner's traveling for a gov. work related job so we are a part for the holidays--so thank you so much Laura - I needed to be able to sing this hymn & instead of humming the missing (from my head!) words-
May God Bless You-

Fabulous image, Laura. As you can see, I'm catching up. Is that little girl you?
