The Light of Christmas

Dear friends,

The Light of Christmas

Christmas has a darkness

Brighter than the blazing noon

Christmas has a chillness

Warmer than the best of June

Christmas has a beauty

Lovelier than the world can show.

For Christmas brings us, Jesus

Brought for us so low.

Earth strike up your music

Birds that sing and bells that ring.

Heaven has an answering machine

For all Angels soon to sing.

Earth put on your whitest

Bridal robe of spotless snow.

For Christmas brings us, Jesus

Brought for us so low.

A Blessed New Year through Jesus,

The angels proclaimed to the shepherds, “Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” When Jesus came into this world people experienced problems and challenges as we do today. To experience peace, we must commit ourselves to the one who can bring peace into our lives. Psalm 119:165 "Those who love Your teachings will find true peace."

We know that for some this past year has been difficult. Let us assure you that; as God has seen us through in the past, so shall He be our help today.

Psalm 46:1 to 7

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; He lifts His voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us;

the God of Jacob is our fortress.”

Judy and I pray that God will bless you through Jesus, our Lord, and Saviour. We pray you will experience a deepening of your personal relationship with Him.

In the stillness of a winter's night, on the outskirts of the town of Bethlehem, Jesus came into a troubled world. May He come into our hearts and bring us His peace.

Immanuel – God with us.

Richard and Judy Gilbert
