New Year


Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as those of old have sung.

It came, a floweret bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night.


Isaiah 'twas foretold it, the Rose I have in mind;
With Mary we behold it, the virgin mother kind.

To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

~ 15th century German carol, Es ist ein Ros'

 
We wish you blessings and peace for the New Year.

Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!


 
 
"In the beginning was the

       Word

And, the Word became

       Flesh

And dwelt among us."

 

          His light was the light

                that the darkness   

                    could not

                              dispel.

 

May greater light be yours!

 
Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!

Saving Civility


"The more accepting we are of reality, the more easily we will be able to adjust to life's circumstances and not be diminished by them."
