Christmas Carols: Come Let Us Adore Him

O, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
O, come ye, O, come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him,
Born the kind of angels:
O, come, let us adore him,
O, come, let us adore him,
O come let us adore him, 
Christ the Lord.
One of my favorite verses from the Christmas story is
"And Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart."

Between the cooking and the wrapping and the shopping and the cleaning and the entertaining, it is far too easy to be anything but quiet and thoughtful this time of year.  I am always humbled to think that the first mother of Christmas took the time to be still and think on that miraculous baby that had come to save the world. 

I wish I were more like her.

So in an effort to "keep" Christmas in my heart as Mary did, here are just a few images to fill your hearts and mine with the spirit of Christ this Christmas season . . .



And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.



And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.



  And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.



And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

May we all take the time to think on the miracle of this Christmas season . . .

Merry Christmas!
