What Child Is This?

What Child is this, who laid to rest,

On Mary's lap is sleeping?

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet

While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King

Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.

Haste, haste to bring Him laud,

The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Seven children, Nineteen grandchildren, Nineteen great grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren are left to grieve mama.  Most of the grandchildren called her Ma Benson, but to me she was mama. The funeral was on Tuesday.  We are certainly going to miss her.

GOD's Gift

Little Baby on the hay, soon there'll be another day
when nails shall pierce Your hands and feet
AS YOU Provide our sin's defeat.

Risen Jesus on the throne,
we lift our praise to YOU alone---
for YOU'RE the gift that we receive
the moment that our
hearts belive.

Roy Lessin

This Christmas, as you consider
that have come to you through
JESUS, GOD's perfect gift,
of all the good things that are yet to come.

Yellow Socks

Another family member is in the hospital wearing those familiar yellow socks.  My mother has been in Vidant Hospital since last Saturday. Please pray with us that she will soon be well and able to return home.  Thank you!!  I know I can count on my blogging friends to pray with us.
