Joy Gift- Advent 22

JOY Gift- Advent 22
Maybe we don't think of Baby Jesus
 as a blond baby with
a blond mother.
And this is our King.
Emmanuel- God with US.
The one who abides.
In me.
"The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, 
and they will call him Immanuel" 
(which means "God with us").
Matthew 1:23
And as this babe was embraced 
and loved by his mother-
He embraces me.
This simple gift brings JOY.
and my heart rests well.
